Take Metro, for sure. Get off on the Smithsonian station on Metro and it's a short walk. A lot of times if you drive you'll have *no where* to park but you might get lucky. Best bet: The Metro.

Any help would be appreciated.

The Cherry Blossoms are defintely blooming right now. There are so many pink cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin.

Cherry blossom season is here, and sooner than anyone had previously expected due to unseasonably warm temperatures in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Cherry blossom trees are blooming at the Tidal Basin in West Potomac Park this week: March 20 to March 23, 2012 is the newly revised forecast.
National Park Service chief horticulturalist Rob DeFeo predicted the peak bloom date for the pink and white flowers will be between March 24 and March 31. The peak date is defined as the day when 70 percent of the blossoms on the trees are open. The trees, which are expected to start blooming March 17, attract about a million visitors to the nation's capital each year. While the average peak bloom date is April 4, the trees on the Tidal Basin have bloomed as early as March 15 (1990) and as late as April 18 (1958).
