Cherry Blossom Season

A City in Bloom

Spring Has Sprung

The National Cherry Blossom Festival isn't just a celebration of the blossoms—it's a three-week-long cultural festival held all over the city. Thankfully, the best views can be found just outside our front door.

Pedal to the Petals

Cherry Blossoms are just a hop, skip, or bike away. Book our Pedal to the Petals package for a Capital Bikeshare credit – a perfect way to get out and Instagram the blossoms.

Where to See the Blossoms

While the Cherry Blossoms bloom all throughout the Metro Area, we recommend borrowing a bicycle and heading down to the Tidal Basin for peak bloom.
