Full description
From the Capitol Building to the Potomac River, the National Mall stretches over 2 miles in length, covering over 300 acres and serving as the nation's front yard. On this Washington DC tour for kids, in the company of a guide trained in interactive techniques, you'll learn how a canal originally ran along the mall to help transport building materials into the city. You will discover how the grass changed from a pasture for sheep, before being converted to a wooded park which is now a field for concerts, demonstrations, and frisbee tournaments. Your guide will explain why there are so many important buildings and what role they play in the city and the country as a whole, painting a picture of how Washington, DC has changed and evolved over hundreds of years.
