The Tidal Basin is lined with 600 cherry trees - a 1912 gift from the city of Tokyo - which blossom each spring with spectacular pink flowers and draw throngs of visitors to the riverside. The Thomas Jefferson Memorial sits at the southern edge of the basin. To explore the basin from the water, rent a pedal boat at the Tidal Basin Boathouse.
