Top 10 Destinations Around the World to See the Cherry Blossoms

Blair Pfander

When someone mentions cherry blossoms, we immediately think of the giant, bright pink fields that flower around Japan or in Washington, DC. each spring.
But we were surprised to discover that, in addition to the big, well-known festivals, hundreds of smaller cherry blossom festivals around the world offer equally glorious displays with fewer crowds.
The International Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon, Georgia, for example—dubbed “the pinkest party on earth”—offers nightly concerts, hot air balloon rides and hot-pink parade floats, while the subtler celebration in Copenhagen honors the birth of author Hans Christian Andersen (and is situated around the city’s iconic Little Mermaid statue).
