    How are the cherry blossoms this year? Are they still in bloom? I was in D.C. in April a few years ago and I missed them. What's the best time of year to see the blossoms? Does it depend on the year? The tree blossoms are so pretty, especially by the Jefferson Memorial.

    The cherry blossoms are losing their petals quickly now with the wind and fact, there is blanket of cherry blossom petals on the ground as we speak. This year's cherry blossom viewing in DC isn't as good...many people will be disappointed mostly because of the rain.

    best Cherry blossoms viewing spot

    I wouldn’t let the rain dissuade you from going. As far as viewing spots, the Japanese American Memorial to Patriotism During World War II is a beautiful spot to see cherry blossoms. It is located near Union Station at the intersection of Louisiana Ave., New Jersey Ave. and D Street, NW. And across the street is a grove on the U.S. Capitol grounds.

    The season started pretty early this year, but there are still some trees to see and blossoms to enjoy. For next spring, you might want to book a visit during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. It starts at the end of March and goes into the middle of April.

    I would skip DC all together...the cherry blossom show is going full tilt in Branch Brook Park. The park now has like over 4,000 cherry blossom trees, which is larger than Washington, D.C.

    That's a lot of trees. Bet that's lovely! Where is Branch Brook Park?

    The park is located in Essex County (New Jersey), roughly between the neighborhoods of Forest Hill and Roseville.
