The Tidal Basin in Washington, DC isn’t the only place to see Cherry Blossoms.  For those of us that live in Maryland and don’t want to fight the crowds in DC, there’s plenty of places to see the cherry blossoms in Maryland as well.  Best yet, most of these locations are completely uncrowded so taking the kids to enjoy the cherry blossoms is a breeze. Plus, the cherry blossoms in Maryland bloom about 2 weeks after the cherry blossoms in DC, so even if you miss the ones in Washington DC, you will still have a chance to see the cherry blossoms in Maryland.

Green Park Gaithersburg Maryland

Green Park is a green space tucked into a residential neighborhood in Gaithersburg Maryland.  There’s a playground for kids and a dog park nearby as well. The star of the show is a lovely halo of cherry blossom trees that bloom bright pink in the spring.  These cherry blossoms are kwanzan cherry blossoms and may photograph even better than the yoshino cherry blossom.  They bloom about 2 weeks after the yoshino cherry blossom trees in Maryland.

Epworth United Methodist Church Gaithersburg Maryland Cherry Blossoms

This church has planted a forest of kwanzan cherry blossom trees right in front of the church entrance.  It literally is a sea of blush in front of this church. The road leading up to the church is also lined in beautiful pink blooms, making it a great place to enjoy the cherry blossoms.  If you have some extra time drive around the neighborhood behind the church and more pink trees will greet you!  These trees bloom about 2 weeks after the light pink yoshino cherry blossoms.

The church location:   9008 Rosemont Dr, Gaithersburg, MD 20877

Glenview Mansion Rockville Civic Center Cherry Blossoms

These kwanzan cherry blossoms in Maryland are truly stunning.  The road leading up to Glenview Mansion are lined in cherry blossom trees, but that’s not all.  The formal gardens also have endless rows of cherry blossom trees that form the prettiest pink awning.  They are usually booked for private events (weddings) on the weekend, so coming here during the weekday is your best bet.

There’s also a gorgeous willow cherry blossom tree and magnolias trees that bloom before the kwanzan cherry blossoms!  These tend to bloom around the same time as the cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin.  So if you are looking for a few cherry blossom photos without the crowds Rockville Civic Center is a great choice!

If you bring the kids with you to see the cherry blossoms, they will also love the playground that is located here.  Makes for a fun afternoon out!

Rockville Civic Center location:  603 Edmonston Drive, Rockville, MD 20851.

Brookside Gardens Gardens Cherry Blossoms

Brookside Gardens is one of my favorite gardens near DC and has one super awesome willowy cherry blossom tree that is definitely worth checking out.  The tree is located right next to the Japanese tea house.  Parking and entrance to Brookside Gardens are completely free.  Also they have nicely paved paths throughout the gardens making it very stroller friendly.  This is an ideal place to see cherry blossoms with your kids.  Brookside is actually one of my favorite places to see tulips in DC as well!

Brookside Gardens location:  1800, Visitors Center, Glenallan Ave, Wheaton, MD 20902.
