Washington in bloom

Washington Monument through blossoms Spring is a great time to visit Washington DC. The weather is mild and the world-famed cherry blossoms are beautiful. Here you can see the Washington Monument (and it's reflection). The Monument is hidden behind blossoms, but the reflection is obvious.
One of the best spots for viewing near the Tidal Ponds at the Jefferson Memorial. There are paddle boats here that are fun to rent and a great way to get away from the crowds. Jefferson Memorial
