Sweeter than Cherry Pie.
Maybe not sweeter than, but definitely a sweet surprise for you eyes!
One of the most amazing things about DC in the spring are the Cherry Blossoms. I am talking about breathtakingly beautiful trees all around the Tidal Basin, which is the body of water the Jefferson, FDR and the new MLK Jr. Memorials are located. Thousands of people flock to DC to catch a glimpse of these blossoms because being a flowering tree, they can be here one day and gone the next.
Most locals really can’t stand Cherry Blossom season because of the constant traffic it brings in but all in all, you can not deny the absolute beauty of them. If you ever get a chance to, come see them. My in-laws came for the Cherry Blossom Festival, but I was able to sneak down there a little early with a good friend to walk among the blossoms and play tourist myself. I thought I would share some of my favorite pictures from my adventure.
