There’s no better way to see that fall is in the air than to see the changing red, yellow and orange leaves throughout autumn. And luckily for RESA residents, even though we’re in a bustling city, it’s easy to see fall foliage thanks to our many beautiful parks in Washington, D.C.
This weekend, take a break from hanging out at your RESA apartment and take a walk through one of these colorful spaces in our fall-friendly city. You’ll love breathing in the crisp, fall air while spotting the most beautiful leaves of the year!
Tidal Basin, located at West Potomac Park, Washington, D.C. which is only a 15 minute journey from home, is a 107-acre reservoir that was built in the 1800s that’s known for its amazing cherry blossoms, but it also deserves recognition for its fall foliage!
Here, the cherry blossom trees turn red, orange and yellow during October and November, making for the perfect day trip for Washington, D.C. residents. Plus, there are far less crowds during autumn than there are during the height of cherry blossom season.
National Mall, located at 3rd to 14th Sts NW between Madison Dr NW and Jefferson Dr SW, Washington D.C. which will take 10 minutes to get to by car, is home to many of our country’s most iconic memorials telling the story of people and events that shaped us as a nation.
However, these stunning memorials and monuments are that much more amazing when set upon the backdrop of the surrounding changing leaves. Here, you can learn about history while seeing the best that autumn has to offer, especially near spots like the Lincoln Memorial or Reflecting Pool.
