Georgetown's Cherry Blossoms

Ten acres of gardens and pathways lined with cherry trees. No lines. It's Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown, the perfect place to take stroll, or bring your out-of-town guests.

Founded in 1920 by Mildred and Robert Bliss, Dumbarton Oaks once had 53 acres with a 19th-century mansion at the highest point in Georgetown.

In spring, the gardens are open daily, except Mondays, from 2:00-6:00 pm. Dumbarton Oaks is at 1703 32nd Street. Tel: 202.339.6400
