When is the best time to visit Washington D.C.?
I would say cherry blossom time anytime you ask me. It is easily the most touristy time but also the most beautiful one. Walking around Tidal Basin in center D.C. when everything is blooming in the prettiest pink is simply amazing. But see for yourself:
But not only the cherry trees are blooming wonderfully.
The center of Washington D.C., where all the magic happens, is also super walkable. Stroll along the impressive US Capitol Grounds and pick a couple museums to visit – they are ALL free of charge!
If you don’t feel like walking, get yourself a bike and explore further distances
And if you happen to visit on a Sunday, definitely head over to Meridian Hill Park better known as Malcolm X Park to watch the drum circle!! People from all over meet to play the drums and other instruments, some people dance to the beats. It is soooo much fund to watch.
Last but not least: Have a delicious burger at famous Ollie’s Trolley
I visited Washington D.C. in the second week of April back in 2015 and hit just the right time to see all the blossoms but be sure to check in advance when they’re supposed to bloom because they could be earlier. Whenever spring decides to set in.
Here comes a little taste of the drum circle:
