The Tidal Basin is a beautiful part of the National Mall in Washington DC. Bordering monuments and memorials, the Tidal Basin is home to thousands of Cherry Trees that were given as a gift to the United States by Japan. Luring visitors to take a stroll or rent a paddle-boat for a tranquil break from sightseeing, the Tidal Basin is a favorite spot to many tourists throughout the year.

If it’s spring, it’s even more exciting, as the blossoming cherry trees add more beauty to the area. It’s also that time of year when the National Cherry Blossom Festival is held and travelers from all around the world come to see the sights and enjoy concerts and various other cultural events.
