The National Mall
I spent the day on the National Mall. If you haven't visited Washington DC as an adult you really need to go. Walking the length of the Mall from the Capital to the Lincoln Monument is an experience every American should have.
Since my last trip, the WW II Memorial (pictured) was complete and is very impressive. It's more than the monument itself, but also the way the public interacts in the monument. It's very well done.
What I didn't know is that the National Mall is a Memorial Day gathering spot for bikers from around the country, many of whom appear to be Vietnam vets......and, judging from a patch on their popular black leather vests, not big Jane Fonda fans.
