Fall at the Mall will take your breath away, as the reflection pool doubles a sensory feast for your eyes amongst monuments and memorials.  The National Arboretum is another ideal location for a scenic hike; the contrast of white columns against a backdrop of yellows, oranges and reds will have you grabbing your camera.  These free-to-visit iconic park suggestions become even more scenic as the leaves change color and the paths display a carpet of fallen leaves.  We suggest you wear layers while exploring, for the average high temps fluctuate between the upper 50’s and upper 70’s, while lows dip into the 30’s.
