After a grey and gloomy Northeast winter, there’s nothing more welcome than the sight of beautiful blooming flowers, bringing color and life back to the stark landscape.
Cherry blossoms are one of the most quintessential harbingers of spring, and the most famous place to see them in this corner of the world is Washington, D.C.
I was originally planning to visit D.C. to see the cherry blossoms in March of 2020, but we all know how that story ends. I finally made it last year and they were absolutely stunning!
There are so many online sources for planning your trip to see the cherry blossoms, and plenty of posts that go very in-depth on every aspect you could think of. I decided to put together this mini guide as an alternative for those looking for a few quick pointers to get started, and who may want to see other parts of the city during their visit as well.
