I finally got the chance to see Washington D.C.’s cherry blossom trees this year while they were in full bloom just a few weeks ago. It has always been on my “to do” list for places to see in the northern Virginia area, but in the four years that I’ve lived here now, not once was I able to make it out in time to see these beauties during their peak bloom.
I brought along with me my coworker, Alice, who had never seen the DC blossoms either. We took the metro downtown and basically spent most of the morning walking around the Tidal Basin where Jefferson’s Memorial is located. Let me tell you…this place was hopping and there were loads of people everywhere! I could only imagine what the following weekend was going to be like with the festival happening.
It truly is a wonderful experience and I definitely recommend it for anyone planning on visiting the nation’s capital during the spring season!
