Sure there are a few shops here... but it's primarily a metro and train stop. Food trucks outside and business offices. Hardly "a thing to do" in DC.

It's open during construction, the Starbucks is busy in the morning. Metro stop so people are always coming and going. Best part was watching the window cleaners hanging from ropes on the building next door.

Workers from the neighborhood flood in here at lunch time to get take out or to sit at a counter and eat a sandwich. Otherwise this is not much of a shopping mall, but definitely a hub on the Metro system.

This is no doubt a very nice subway stop for an efficient metro line with a few food shops. Unfortunately it's not much more than this but does have some great entry feature.

One word - food. Options. Finally. The Washington Mall Is a great place to visit and even a great place to stay until you want something to eat. Yes, our hotel had some great choices. But as expected, the options are ridiculously priced. Food trucks...More
