We had a layover of 5 hours in Washington DC and took full advantage to hoof it around town since I had never been there before. Just walking the length of the National Mall staggered my with its sheer size. You walk for what seems like 43 weeks and the National Monument (555 feet high) just never seems to get any closer now matter how long you walk. We did eventually get there and saw many other things like the Lincoln Memorial but unfortunately our timing was off so also missed other attractions such as the Smithsonian. A return trip is definitely in order!!
