This is one of the most beautiful places in DC and I consider it a hidden treasure. It's away from all the touristy areas and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
The National Arboretum offers an ever-changing hike of constant discovery because it contains flora and fauna from around the world in its fifteen special collections.
You can get lost in this place for hours. Although the parking lot is completly filled, you never feel like this place is crowded. I chose to do the self guided walking tour so I could take my time to do whatever I wanted. As much as I love flowers, I can't tell them apart and I'm worse with herbs. Fortunately everything is labeled in this place! You learn about the different varieties of basil, peppers, rosemary, etc. This is a wonderful place for a date or to wow your out of town guests.
