I was a few years ago in season and it was crowded. I was here this March and it was a veritable ghost town. Great for photos aside from the gloomy sky.

While everything people want to see is located in the National Mall this is not a small mall. You will be required to walk and walk a lot if you want to go from one end to the other. There are tour buses that offer hop on hop off service to help get from one end of the mall to the other.

As long as you don’t mind the walk this is a must in Washington. We went on a warm spring day, lots of people and the was a real buzz. It is a long walk so have decent footwear.
