Cherry Blossom Festival questions - DC

Jump to last reply

I will be in DC for one day -- 3/27. According to web, that is during the Cherry Blossom Festival. A few questions:

Are the trees blooming? Weather is predicted for light snow next week. Wondering if the trees are affected.

Staying at Holiday Inn on C St. SW...right behind the Air & Space Museum. Is that walking distance to see the blossoms? About how far?

There appears to be a major freeway running right through the middle of that area --Southwest Freeway/395. Is that a problem to cross if walking?

Is there any transportation around the Tidal Basin and/or Potomac Park or is it walking only? Looks like a good portion of the island/pennisula that is called Potomac Park is a golf course.

Thanks.
