The most popular place to visit the cherry blossom trees is at the Tidal Basin, but there are many off-the-radar locations to enjoy the pink and white petals throughout the City. One of the best is the shoreline of East Potomac Park, where you can take a stroll and picnic amongst the blossoms at Hains Point. Other lesser-known and less-crowded places to enjoy the cherry blossoms include the National Arboretum, Anacostia River Park, Stanton Park and Oxon Run Park.
