My Favorite Thing About Washington, DC

.....the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin. Quite possibly, I've never experienced anything more beautiful than being surrounded by the puffy little pale pink blossoms surrounding the Jefferson Memorial. I've enjoyed both early morning sunrise picnics and late evening champagne celebrations on the banks of the Tidal Basin during peak blossom week. I look forward to it every year and plan to walk down there (from Woodley Park) several times over the next week. If you go - don't drive, it's impossible. Take metro - or cab it as close as you can get and walk the rest.
