We knew we wanted to get to Washington D.C. to see the Cherry Blossoms. What we failed at was trying to get up there during a week-day to beat the crowds. This was supposed to be a post filled with beautiful Tidal Basin images of the Cherry Blossoms! After three hours caught in traffic, we made other plans.
While we drove through the Arboretum, we stopped at the renowned Capitol Columns. There was planned construction taking place and the water from the pool was dry, so we didn’t get to see it in all it’s glory but it was beautiful none the least! It is quite the popular spot and we get a lot of requests for proposals at the site. And we can see why!
Not too far from the columns are the additional gardens, arches, and a beautiful Cherry Blossom tree in an open field. Quite a stunning place to see in person! What we loved most was how open the entire space was.
It’s the perfect place to picnic or even take your pup for a walk! We loved that there were no entrance fees or parking fees! That’s a win in our book, especially when it comes to D.C. Parking alone can cost $25 and up!
We’ll have to make a trip back when things are in full bloom for the full effect of the gardens. And next time, we’ll bring Mo! But for now, enjoy the images from our trip!
