    Fantastic commentary!!! Insightful and deep thought provoking analysis and history of the monuments...would have loved more commentary while walking between monuments

    This is the thinking person's guide to the monument of the National Mall, with plenty of well-researched history and smart critiques. Even if you think you know these icons of American culture, I guarantee you'll learn more. It is a long walk between the sites. This would be ideal to do as a jog (although you shouldn't jog through the war memorials. Stop and listen.) It'd be great to do the Capitol to the Washington Monument portion by Capitol Bikeshare to save time.
