If you’re spending a spring day down on the National Mall in Washington DC the Floral Library is a must-visit. As the name indicates it’s one of the best places to see tulips in DC with over 90 flower beds it’s a great spot to frame a photograph with the Washington Monument in the background. The National Park Service typically plants tulips at the start of spring which typically bloom later than the cherry blossoms. After the tulips die out summer flowers are planted to last through the summer. The Floral Library was created in 1969 under Lady Bird Johnson’s Capital Beautification Project ..read more

If you’re driving the California coast you won’t want to miss out on Avenue of the Giants.

Start of the Rainforest Trail B from the parking lot Photos in this post are from the trail B segment but I would assume both segments are equally beautiful. If you have a Canadian park pass you can put that in your window to park or use the self ..read more
