Take a stroll around Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. This park was the site of two World’s Fairs. There’s a ton to do at the sprawling park, including hiking trails and scenic outlooks but if you visit during blossom season it also becomes a floral-lovers haven.

This family-friendly attraction has plenty to do across its 20 acres, including three playgrounds, an outdoor pool, and a recreation center. But it’s also one of the best spots in the city to catch the cherry blossoms; most are heavily concentrated in the walkway near the park’s Fifth Avenue and 124th Street entrance.

A four-mile-long path nicknamed the Cherry Walk stretches from 100th to 125th street and is the perfect place to view the blooming nature. These cherry trees are particularly special; they come from the same group of trees that are planted at Washington D.C.’s iconic Tidal Basin.
