20 Prime Places to See Beautiful Cherry Blossoms
Cherry-blossom appreciation has been elevated to an art by the Japanese, who each spring hold everything from flower-appreciation picnics to poetry readings beneath the trees' delicate pink blooms. But other places offer excellent opportunities to enjoy the stunning spring flowers, too. Cherry trees blossom across the globe, from Washington, D.C., to Stockholm and Paris, as well as Japan.
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has an impressive collection of cherry trees that includes some 26 different species. The cherry blossoms usually appear between late March and mid-May, but check the website for updates. The first trees often bloom along with the daffodils. Admission is $15 for adults and $8 for students 12 and older.
