Want To View The DC Cherry Blossoms? Don’t Want To Head Downtown?

It’s Cherry Blossom time in DC again and the throngs of tourists will be headed downtown this week. That’s generally a cue to the rest of us to avoid the downtown area like the plague. But if you still want to soak up the gorgeous blossoms, there’s a new web app that will help you find other neighborhoods with blooming cherry blossoms. It’s called http://www.dccherrypicker.com. You’ll have to make sure location services is turned on so it can use your location to find the cherry blossoms closest to you.

For an even geekier side, there’s a list view that breaks the trees down into different types of cherry trees and tells you how many feet away each one is from you.
