My Visit To Tidal Basin, Washington Dc - Dr Ron Virmani

Travelling is one of my passions that keeps me engaged all over the year. Recently I got a chance to visit the famous cherry blossom season besides other places in Tidal Basin, Washington DC. Dr Ron A Virmani was the one who made me familiar about the place. As per his advice, I made a visit to Tidal Basin in Washington DC during the month of April. I heard from Dr Ron Virmani that the blooming period of the cherry blossom is very brief and it can be hardly seen for a week or two. This motivated me to visit the cherry blossom as I didn’t want to miss out the wonderful opportunity of enjoying the blooming. He also guided me on the significant places and activities that are famous in Tidal Basin.

The place was fantastic with a line of trees surrounding the Potomac river and the Washington channel. No one can judge the exact dates of the blooming period because it is prone to change each year. But I should say I am lucky because Ron Virmani gave me the peak dates of blooming as per his knowledge. I enjoyed the blooming of the flowers along with the huge gathering of people. Most of the cherry blossom trees are concentrated over the Tidal Basin. The row of trees extends towards the Hains Point through the shores of Potomac Park. These are the major areas where cherry blossom trees are available though there are other places nearby where you can feel the presence of these trees. For instance, I could find some cluster of cherry blossom trees near the National Mall, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial. I made sure to visit all these places. All these have their own historic importance. The other similar monuments include Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and Martin Luther King Memorial.

Around the tidal basin, there were paddle boats which were used by the people for taking a tour over the river. As I could not find enough time during the visit, I missed the opportunity to use them. Other than cherry blossom and monuments, I also happened to climb on the Albert Einstein Memorial. I was astonished by the great statue built for Einstein made out of bronze. The statue was placed on the white steps made of granites and the grounds have been scripted with the famous equations and formulas of the great scientist.

The visit to Tidal Basin was a memorable one for me. I would like to thank RonVirmani for his timely suggestion to visit the place. I would recommend everyone to make a visit to the cherry blossom of Tidal Basin at least once in your lifetime to enjoy the beauty of the place.
