Go Down and See The Cherry Blossoms- Parking is EASY

My son and I went down to see The Cherry Blossoms… for the first time.  I’m embarrassed we hadn’t done it before because it was so easy- and come on, the Cherry Blossoms are just so pretty!


They are officially ‘past peak’ right now, but as you can see from my pictures- they still look pretty good!

About the parking- it’s easy!  Just drive down to the Tidal Basin, go around the Jefferson Memorial and that parkway right there that circles the Tidal Basin and is right by the FDR Memorial has free parking all along it.  That’s right- they changed it from 2 ways to a 1 way street- so 1 lane is all parking- brilliant !!!!!!

When did the DC government get so smart ??!!

That’s how it was this week- check the Official Website for details, (although on the website they encourage you to park and take their free tram).

Go down- it’s easy, fun and there’s nothing like seeing the Cherry Blossoms in person!
