Weekdays are slightly less crowded than weekends when visiting the cherry blossoms, since D.C. residents have to go to work and school. Around sunset you’ll see people pop over to the Jefferson Memorial to take in the view, but it’s nothing compared to weekend crowds.

Grab the Best Photo Light at Sunrise and Sunset

Sunrise is the quietest time on the Tidal Basin and National Mall for photos. Only hardcore photographers and cherry blossom enthusiasts are out that early. While we prefer sunset, mainly because we like to sleep, you will get incredible light either time of the day. 

Where to Find D.C. Cherry Blossoms Apart From the Tidal Basin

  • United States National Arboretum

  • Washington Monument

  • Dumbarton Oaks (Georgetown)

  • Hains Point (East Potomac Park)

  • Kenworth neighborhood (Bethesda, MD) 

  • Arlington National Cemetery (Arlington, VA)" ~ dctravelmag
