DC’s Cherry Blossoms Magnificently Bloom
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
The infamous DC Cherry Blossoms are magnets for droves of tourists. Hundreds of thousands of people travel to the District every year for the National Cherry Blossom Festival to experience the puffy white blooms at their peak. This year’s bloom arrived later than usual, actually later than the last 10 years, but it appears tourists had no problems re-booking their travel plans.

But even with the pushing, shoving, sweating, unpleasant atmosphere of ill-mannered masses and innumerable selfies, the blossoms are worth the trip.
