The best place to see these cherry blossoms right now is just east of Bethesda Terrace where Terrace Dr. and East Dr. intersect. Here’s a Google Maps link.

There’s a small hill (also a great picnic spot when the weather permits) with multiple cherry blossoms already showing very full blooms!

In fact, today (March 14, 2023) it was snowing on the cherry blossoms. Truly beautiful!
