Smithsonian Pollinator Garden

The Smithsonian Pollinator Garden could be easily missed but the great thing abo it traveling with kids is they always notice! It was actually a lot of fun and we ended up reading all the signs and learning a ton. (I didn't know scout bees go back to the hive and do a special dance to show the direction of the flower patch to the others!) 📍 The Garden is on the National Mall in DC between the NGA Sculpture Garden and Natural History Museum on Madison Dr. 🚻 Clean and ventilated restrooms right next door at the Sculpture Garden
