Think Pink: Where to See the Cherry Blossoms in L.A.
In the next few days and weeks, cherry blossoms are about to blanket the branches of local trees with their gorgeous blooms. Last weekend LAist headed out to Encino to the Lake Balboa area to see some early blooms, and today the Daily News has a listing of other places around town where you and yours can enjoy the cheerful springtime sight of cherry blossoms, take a stroll, snap some picks, and get outside. Some places have free access, like the Cherry Blossom Festival Southern California, outside the Japanese American National Museum (first weekend in April), and Stoner Recreation Center Playground (West LA) and Victory Park (Pasadena) where blooms are happening now. Other places like Descanso Gardens and the LA County Arboretum & Botanic Garden have admission fees, but you'll see a ton of gorgeous stuff and can make a whole day of it.
