• Parade caps off Washington's famous Cherry Blossom Festival

    2013-04-15

    Spring officially arrived nearly a month ago, but the festivities in Washington, D.C., this weekend helped bring it into full swing. The famous National Cherry Blossom Parade wound its way through the national capital on Saturday, and while the procession marked the end of the cherry blossom festival, that doesn't mean you still can't head down to D.C. to see the beautiful trees for yourself, The Washington Post reports.

    The festival was especially popular this year, with throngs of people lining the street to take advantage of the near-perfect weather. Although the parade is a highlight of the festival, there are a few places in D.C. that offer the most spectacular views of these unique plants. USA Today recommends heading to the tidal basin along the Jefferson Memorial, which is certainly a good spot given that one of the city's most famous monuments is standing in the background.

    Of course, the Jefferson Memorial is not the only place to catch a glimpse of these stunning trees. United States travel aficionados suggest paying a visit to The National Arboretum, which offers expert-led tours through the garden - and contains a wide variety of cherry trees.
