Last month we went and saw the Cherry Blossoms in DC. We went in the evening and traffic and parking was insane. We ended up deciding to park in a parking lot by the Theodore Roosevelt Island. We didn’t think the walk would be that long – it was. We ended up walking for about an hour to get to the Lincoln Memorial. We got a few pictures, then we had to walk back so we could get to our car before it got dark. I wouldn’t recommend parking near Theodore Roosevelt Island unless you want to walk a lot!
