Technically part of West Potomac Park, Tidal Basin is 107 acres and 10 feet deep.

You can find walking or hiking trails, paddleboat rentals, and nature lovers spending time outside. This is where the Cherry Blossom Festival is held every year.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Washington DC!
