Unfortunately the Cherry Blossom photographs of the Tidal Basin make it hard to appreciate it when not in bloom. We enjoyed the shade the trees provided but the pictures we took look nothing like the peak time to visit.
A national gathering place! Families, kids, strollers, young couples, teens, seniors, Americans, all nationalities, all ages, races, ethnicities. On a lovely DC evening it's an amazing collection of human beings coming to see the great monuments of our nation.
Be cautious walking around the Tidal Basin. There are no handrails between the walkway and the water and the concrete is not smooth.... trip hazards in places.
This is nice place to walk around and also sit down and relax for sometime with lot of tourist attractions in the walking distance.
