First off... what is there NOT to do in, on, or around the Mall?
Seriously this place as everything. 90%of all the government buildings, museums, and monuments are all right here or within a couple blocks of here. Anyone going to DC to see the sights and history can just go here and be satisfied. Although, if you go I recommend at least a full entire day from sun up to well into the night to be able to experience everything.
If you're planning on going up in the Washington Monument, pre-order your tickets online. They hardly have any to sell in the morning anymore (Booo....). And I know we haven't had much rain, but the grass could use a little love and care. And for these reason's I'm docking it a star.
I don't care how old or young you are. It is worth the $2.50 to go ride the Carousel on the Mall over by the Smithsonian Castle. Yeah it's a little run down but its still neat! There's a dragon to ride, a horse like a cow, and the coolest thing, a teacup type seat that you can sit and spin it around the pole. on a carousel!!! How freaking cool is that?!?! It's just a neat experience. Also if you're just out strolling the mall, and not checking too many things out, Definitely pop in the Art Museums Sculpture Garden and walk through it. It is awesome!
Just make sure you have some good walking shoes. Even the nearest metro stop is a good 3 blocks or more away.

Long, clean and open, the Mall is Washington's premier green space and one of the best city parks in the country. Many of the capital city's most famous monuments, museums and government buildings surround this beautiful thoroughfare - including the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol Building and the White House. As famous and impressive as it is, for Washingtonians the real value is it's availability for recreation. This is prime park space, perfect for picnics, frisbee, jogging, dog walking or - on the 4th of July - watching some of the best fireworks in the world!

Great open space for running, strolling and sitting for a picnic. It also links some of the most famous spots in the city so definitely worth a visit. Really helps if it is a sunny spring day and the cherry blossoms are in season.

Is there anything better than taking a walk on the mall in the nation's capitol? I love the reflecting pool, the WWII Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. My favorite thing though is to go and watch a movie on a Monday night in the summer.
