Go See: Washington DC in March/April
Hope springs eternal. See the cherry blossoms in full splendor for about two weeks during late March to early April.
The trees beautifully highlight monuments to our nation's great patriots that surround Washington DC's Tidal Basin. The Washington Memorial, dedicated to our first president, looms above. Find the smaller Japanese statues scattered off the path among the trees. Lay down in the grass. It's amazing to experience this kind of peace in the middle of our nation's capital. Snag a few hours here during a weekday for maximum leisure and to make picture taking easier!
