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.
