In just a few weeks, you’ll be able to kickstart your spring by taking a trip up to Washington, D.C. and seeing the iconic cherry blossoms.

The National Park Service is projecting peak bloom from March 23rd to the 26th, which is when 70% of the Yoshino cherry blossoms will be open.

Peak bloom varies depending on the weather conditions and usually occurs during the last week of March or the first week of April.

The planting of cherry trees in Washington, D.C. originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship from the People of Japan.
