Yesterday, I drove into Washington, D.C. at the break of dawn so that I could be at the Tidal Basin at sunrise. I was not the only one. In fact, I saw people from all around the world.
Although the cherry blossoms were slightly past peak, it was still a glorious sight.
Here are a few photos, of the cherry blossoms and the memorials around the Tidal Basin.
- renting a paddle boat on the Tidal Basin is an amazing way to see cherry trees and avoid the crowds.
- surrounding areas also have incredible cherry blossom displays. Perhaps the best neighborhood is Kenwood, Maryland.
Have you seen cherry blossoms anywhere in the world?
NOTE: As much as I wish I was compensated by the companies mentioned in this article, I am NOT.
