The National Arboretum is pretty epic

The Advoc8te spends so much time east of the river she doesn’t really get a chance to enjoy all of the gems that DC has to offer. On Sunday, the bestie and I packed up our fur babies and paid a visit to the U.S. National Arboretum, 446 acres of plush loveliness. A great way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon, I highly recommend it!

The Arboretum grounds are open every day of the year except December 25 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The National Bonsai & Penjing Museum is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily except for federal holidays November through February, so plan to visit this collection first if you visit late in the day. Please see our Hours and Directions page for additional information. We look forward to seeing you at the National Arboretum, where science meets beauty.
