Videos allow you to see National Mall in real time

WASHINGTON — EarthCam, which provides live streaming video and time-lapse construction cameras, has revealed a new viewpoint of the National Mall.

D.C. joins Seattle, Los Angeles and Palm Beach as places you can check out without having to buy plane tickets.

Of course, it’s better to actually visit those places. Still, the views are pretty cool. The D.C. camera provides aerial shots of the Washington Monument and U.S. Capitol building, and live looks at the weather. Viewers can manipulate the camera and enjoy panoramic views of the mall.

The idea is for visitors to see national landmarks from a different perspective. Check it out here.
