Peak blossom season is just around the corner. So what are you waiting for?

Ushering in the arrival of spring, the cherry blossoms of Washington, D.C., are nearly in bloom. These pastel beauties can be found all throughout the region, and the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival is kicking off this month with a series of online and in-person events. With Washington, D.C., White House as your centrally located home base, plan your outings with this handy guide.

When should I go?

The National Park Service has predicted that cherry trees will reach peak blooms between April 2 and April 5. Depending on weather conditions, floral displays will begin around the last week of March — a cold snap can push it back and warm days will bring it on sooner.

Where can I see the cherry blossoms?

All over Washington, D.C.! Pack your camera to capture inspirational images of these gorgeous blooms all along the Tidal Basin (a tip: Go at sunrise to avoid the crowds that converge later in the day). On this route, both the Jefferson Memorial and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial offer spots to stop and enjoy the views. One little-known fact: The U.S. National Arboretum in northeast D.C. has more than 30 varieties of cherry trees on display over miles of pristine pathways. Best of all, it’s free!

What if I miss them?

Cherry blossoms may be fleeing, but you can still enjoy spring blooms all season long. The Arboretum is awash in colorful azaleas along paths of woodland trails. Virginia bluebells are on full display at Riverbend Park on a path that follows the Potomac River. Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens has expansive gardens springing to life this season and an astonishing greenhouse filled with over 2,000 types of orchids.

Is it safe to visit?

Cherry blossom season is a busy time in D.C., but social distancing is essential even when you’re exploring outdoors and masks are mandatory on federal property. When you return to your Club Quarters accommodations in between springtime strolls, you can trust in our CQ Certified Safe and Clean Program. This program follows all the guidelines established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is certified by industry experts, featuring enhanced cleaning procedures, touchless check-in and other safety protocols.
