Cherry Blossoms on the Tidal Basin

April 22–27, 2018

The cherry blossom trees that surround the world famous Tidal Basin should still be in bloom during the meeting. With over 3,800 trees planted, this historic national park, home to the Jefferson, FDR, and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorials, turns into a sea of pale pink and white blossoms from mid-March through the end of April. Take a walk around the waterfront path and enjoy one of DC’s most breathtaking views.
