How to See the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC in 2023?

Cherry Blossom Tour


Spring of 2023 is almost here, and Washington DC will soon be adorned by thousands of pink and white cherry blossoms. The Tidal Basin and the National Mall will soon attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to see the cherry trees in full bloom. Many of you might be asking yourselves how to see the cherry blossoms in Washington DC in 2023? Well, you’re in luck. There is still time to reserve a Cherry Blossom Tour of the Tidal Basin and all the memorials on the National Mall with Nonpartisan Pedicab.

Can I Walk Around the Tidal Basin to See the Cherry Blossoms?

Yes, of course you can. But, it’s several miles of walking and will take you several hours of walking plus time spent at each of the memorials. Also, traffic on peak bloom days can be intense, and parking lots are either full or else distant from the Cherry Trees. The nearest Metro station is the Smithsonian Metro, but it’s still several blocks away from the nearest view of the Tidal Basin.

Can I Take a Cherry Blossom Tour to See the Cherry Trees in Full Bloom?

A tour of the Cherry Blossoms makes all the logistics much easier. If you take a tour with Nonpartisan Pedicab, we will pick you up from any downtown location — hotels, parking lots, museums, restaurants, Metro stations, etc. We can avoid most of the traffic, and take you around the Tidal Basin to see the world famous Cherry Trees as well as visiting all the memorials on the National Mall in 2-4 hours. At the end of your tour, we will drop you off again at any downtown location of your choice.

What will I see on a Cherry Blossom Tour?

You will have an opportunity to stop at all the memorials on the National Mall, and at each one you will be able to get off and go inside for photos.  The major memorials around the Tidal Basin are the Jefferson Memorial, the FDR Memorial, the MLK Memorial, and the George Mason Memorial.  We will also stop at the Washington Monument, the WWII Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial.  In addition, you will have an opportunity to get out and visit the Vietnam and the Korean War Memorials. To top it off, we will get a spectacular view of the White House, and if you want we can continue down to the US Capitol as well.

Is the Cherry Blossom Tour recommended for Seniors and People with Disabilities?

Yes, a Nonpartisan Pedicab tour is the ideal way for anyone with mobility issues to see the Cherry Blossoms and all the National Memorials around Washington DC. We can get much closer to the Cherry Trees and the memorials than a motor vehicle can. Much less walking is required. And, in many cases, you can get excellent close up photos without ever getting off the pedicab. It’s quite easy to get in and out of the pedicab, too, since we can get right up to the curb, making a very short step to get seated. We can easily take walkers, and we also frequently can fit one folding wheelchair along as well.

Is the Cherry Blossom Tour Pet Friendly?

All of our tours are pet-friendly. We love dogs. There is fresh air, plenty of opportunity to run around on the grass, and endless photo opportunities. And, the best part is that dogs ride for free.

Cherry Blossom Festival 2023


When Will the Cherry Trees Blossom in Washington DC in 2023?

This is not an exact science at all. In fact, until a week or 10 days before peak bloom, the scientific predictions are usually incorrect. January and February of 2023 have been an unseasonably warm winter, and many people are predicting an early bloom this year. The National Cherry Blossom Festival  this year runs from March 20, 2023 through April 16, 2023. The National Park Service operates a Bloom Watch for you to check out the latest predictions.
