Avoiding the Crowds: Washington DC Cherry Blossoms

Tip #1 Go Early

Viewing just a few days before peak bloom is a great way to avoid the crowds and still enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms. 

Tip #2 Explore!

Avoid the Tidal Basin. Go a few blocks north towards the Washington Memorial and you’ll find more blooms. 

Tip #3 National Arboretum

During cherry blossom season, nearly thirty different varieties of cherry trees put on their spring best at the National Arboretum.
