Our Annual Sunrise Breakfast with the Cherry Blossoms

Flag review

Great place to have a picnic, and what kid doesn't like a picnic! Not to mention that you won't have to worry about annoying the people around you. Tons of families set up along the Tidal Basin and watch the sun rise behind the Jefferson Memorial while having breakfast. There is plenty of room for the kids to run - just make sure they don't jump in the water ;-) After breakfast, you can walk around the Basin, take photos of the famous Cherry Blossom trees, go to a museum OR, if you time it well, can catch the Cherry Blossom Parade.

Tips for Families

* It can be pretty cold around 5:30 or 6am, so dress the kiddos in layers. * Parking is a mess, so go early and park along the Potomac River
