Washington D.C. Cherry Trees

In Washington, D.C., every March or April, when the conditions are just right, over 3,000 cherry trees bloom all over the Tidal Basin and surrounding areas. It's a sight to see and people come from all over the world to see the spectacle. Back in 1912, the city of Tokyo gave the gift of the cherry trees to Washington, D.C. and every year there are several events, including the Cherry Blossom Festival, to commemorate the event. Try to make it here next time!
