Cherry Blossom Festival

April 9, 2010

I’ve been to Washington D.C. on assignment four times in the past few years.  I’ve stayed overnight twice, I’ve even shot in the White House and yet I’ve never seen the mall or any of the amazing “Free” Smithsonian Museums.  Oh the ‘glamour’ of traveling on assignment…

After years of hearing about how great the Cherry Blossom Festival is we finally decided to go.  While there are more Cherry trees in bloom on my block in Kew Gardens than in the city of Washington D.C. right now, the weekend was fantastic.

Too many great things to mention without being a bore, however, DC is chock-o-block full of great food, great art and great architecture.  While neither of the following was on anybody’s short list that I talked to, they are both defiantly worth seeing: The National Portrait Gallery and the FDR Monument.  AMAZING!
