Early spring is one of the best times of year to visit Washington DC for the world-famous Cherry Blossom Festival. The National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place each spring during March or April. The dates for the festival vary from year to year. The peak is the day when 70 percent of the Yoshino Cherry Trees are in full bloom, making a spectacular sight. The Downtown area is decorated with pink lighting and decor to add to the festive atmosphere. This year the festival is in full swing from March 20th through April 11th.

Best Places To View The Stunning Cherry Blossoms
The prime location to see the Yoshino Cherry Blossoms and capture some incredible shots of the spectacle is the National Mall and the Tidal Basin. For first-time visitors who aren’t familiar with the location, the Tidal Basin is West Potomac Park’s reservoir that’s partially artificial. The Tidal Basin Loop Trail consists of two miles that loop around the Basin. Here are the best places to capture the perfect image of the stunning blossoms:
- The banks of the Tidal Basin offer opportunities for shooting spectacular photos. Plan to walk around the loop at different times of the day to capture the light. Sunrise and sunset are perfect for getting beautiful images of the blossoms. If you plan your visit for very early in the morning, there are fewer people around.
- The Martin Luther King Memorial is a 30-foot statue erected as a tribute to the civil rights leader. The sculpture offers an incredible backdrop for the cherry blossoms. The MLK Memorial is on a four-acre site along the Tidal Basin.
- The Jefferson Memorial’s steps offer panoramic views of the Tidal Basin, the Washington Monument, and the cherry blossoms.
