Drop everything you're doing and go see the Cherry Blossoms right this instant. The National Park Service has announced that at least 70% of the cherry trees buds have begun to flower. Peak bloom is expected to last until the 25th, TODAY. So right about now, you are asking yourself "Self, what is so special about the Cherry Blossoms this year, why is Tommy insisting that I go see them?". This year's National Cherry Blossom Festival marks the 110th anniversary since the Mayor of Tokyo, Yukio Ozaki, gifted the 3,000 Yoshino cherry trees to the city. The National Park Service is estimating that this year's festival (which runs through April 17th) will draw a crowd of upwards of 1.5 million people. It is also the first festival in 2 years since Covid changed everything,


In the event that two-stepping around a million (a somewhat factual headcount based on the number of visitors in years past ) other people at the Tidal Basin is not your thang, here is a list of places in and around DC to see the Cherry Blossoms without the gaggle of people in your way. After you have seen them and taken the obligatory selfie with the Cherry Blossom background, I think you will agree with me, the hype is totally worth it.
