Last weekend, I went to Washington, DC to officially embrace Spring by enjoying its cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin. Unfortunately, I was two days shy on the date they are expected to fully bloom—which is today. However, the weather was really nice—the sky was blue, the sun was up all day and the sunset was breathtakingly stunning. If I didn’t go, I don’t know what the weather would be like. :))
Here are 25 Photos of the Cherry Blossoms 2014 in Washington DC
Washington DC has a scattered number of cherry blossoms trees across the city.
From the Capitol Hill to the White House to the Lincoln Memorial, there are two or three that are surrounded by tourists and locals taking selfies in every angle of their face.
The Japanese Government gave 3,000 cherry trees as a gift to the people of Washington, DC in 1912.
Today, these cherry trees are the main tourist attraction of the city in Spring time.
The best time to go for a stroll around the basin is in the morning.
Wake up early before the tourists come in buses.
Strolling around without the crowd is a walk to remember.
Enjoy the rest of the photos.
It’s been predicted that cherry blossom trees will be in full bloom between today, April 8-12, 2014. For more info, check out their website.
