The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is located next to the Tidal Basin which is surrounded by Washington DC’s blooming cherry trees. In the photograph above a cherry tree with its blossoms is visible in the upper left corner.

This memorial was built between 1939 and 1943, and the statute of Thomas Jefferson was placed in the center of the memorial in 1947.

Many more seagulls than you might expect to find in Washington DC find time to visit the Tidal Basin. Some visitors provide food for the seagulls, and that can attract them in huge numbers.

Blossoming cherry trees line the edge of the Tidal Basis and provide a powerful attraction for visitors during the National Cherry Blossom Festival in the spring of each year. The peak bloom date for cherry blossoms changes each year, but it is usually in the first week of April.

When the blossoms come, the sidewalks that wind through and under the cherry blossom trees are often crowded with visitors from early in the morning until late into the evening.

Many of the cherry blossom trees line the edge of the tidal basin where the Thomas Jefferson Memorial is located.
