    Those cherry blossoms are indeed splendid. A gift from the Japanese in both 1912 and 1965. The favour was returned when cuttings from these trees were taken to replace the cherry blossoms around the Imperial Palace that were destroyed due to flooding in 1981.

    Ah, Washington, the seat of US politics. I Always thought that Abe Lincoln and George Washington had the concept of ethics tied up between them with:
    "I cannot tell a lie" and "No man has a good enough memory to be a good liar".
    Perhaps politicians the world over could take a leaf out of this old cherry tree?

    Great tips. I'd add don't break the the cherry trees - don't snap of twigs to bring a blossom much home with you (they probably won't make it home anyhow!

    I generally try to avoid the main cherry festival. I've seen it and I let the tourists have first pick. Plus, I am very allergic to their pollen. I alternate between "oh, so pretty" and "I want to set them all on fire". ;) This is the first spring in 17 years I won't work downtown and I'm actually kind of excited to miss the traffic nightmares!

    As a fellow Washingtonian, Christina, I commend you on these excellent tips. I would also advise to avoid weekends, if possible, and go later in the day to minimize the overflowing crowds. Perhaps I'll see you there!

    Excellent advice, @Christine Stevens. Thanks for sharing. I love DC. I was there last year in mid-February for a business trip and had some free time to explore. It was great because I hadn't been there for many years, and I was with a colleague who had never been. For me, it was like watching a movie I had seen before but paying closer attention and appreciating the moments more. I was able to take some stunning photos and was in my element with all of the history and walking. I'd love to get back there when the blossoms are in bloom, that's for sure. It's definitely on my re-visit list.
