As the key draw to Washington, DC, the National Mall is one must see retailers in this bustling locale. These narrow expanse of green expand several blocks from the U.S. Capitol Building to the Washington Monument.
It is also the sight of other hotspots and museums, including the National Museum of American History, National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institute and many others. Also understood to be part of the Mall are the proximate Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Key historical events have occurred at the mall, including famed historical protests and rallies including the 1963 March on Washington rally that featured Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, and the Vietnam War Moratorium Rally in 1969.
