10 Enchanting Places to See Spring in Bloom

Cherry Blossoms

For those of you who have been following me for a bit on Instagram, you know that I am a huge fan of all things pastel. It might not surprise you to hear that spring is my favorite season. I love everything about it; from the mild temperatures and beautiful blooms, to the floral prints and feminine trends. In my eyes, spring is simply the best.

If you had any doubts and need some cold hard proof, I am rounding up a list of the best places to see spring in bloom. From all across the globe, spring is proving year after year why it is the best season of all.

Cherry Blossoms in London, UK

The first cherry blossoms start to pop up in London in early March, but it is in April where you can see these picturesque Japanese trees really making themselves known. Check out The Cherry Walk at Kew Gardens or the Regent’s Park for a little slice of heaven.

Wisteria in Charleston, SC

Wisteria is just one of the many things to love about Charleston, South Carolina in the spring. A wispy, willowing plant, wisteria wraps itself around the city’s most historic buildings. These impressive vines can reach as high as 65 feet above the ground, and spread out 32 feet wide.

Oregon Tulips

Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, OR is a magical place I was dying to visit this year. Their annual Tulip Fest is March 24 – April 30, and admission is only $5. That seems like a steal to see this incredible field of colorful tulips!

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch is a spectacular display of ranunculus right outside of San Diego, California. It opens up once a year from March 1 – May 10. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this sea of colorful blooms is nature’s way of announcing spring in southern California.

Mount Fuji, Japan

The cherry blossoms around the Fuji Five Lakes typically peak around mid April. Some of the most popular spots for cherry blossom viewing are in the regions of Chureito Pagoda, the Northern Shores of Kawaguchiko, the Ubuyagasaki Peninsula and Oshino Hakkai.

Keukenhof, Holland

Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe, is known for being one of the world’s largest flower gardens. Approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted in the park annually, covering over 79 acres of land in Lisse, Netherlands. For your viewing pleasure, the park is open this year from March 23 – May 21.

Nemophila at Hitachi Seaside Park

Hitachi Seaside Park is a national park on the Japanese coast. The park is home to a variety of colorful flowers, including nemophila. From April 22 – May 14, 4.5 million nemophilas (baby blue eyes) paint the hills blue. According to visitors, these blooms are stunning under the blue sky against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.

California Golden Poppies

The Golden Poppy grows wild throughout California in the spring. It became the state flower in 1903, and  April 6 is known as California Poppy Day. You can find California poppies in Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, Bear Valley Wildflower Meadows, Carrizo Plain Wildflower Meadows and more according to this article.

Washington, D.C.

The Washington D.C. cherry blossoms reached peak bloom on March 25 this year, with 70 percent of the blossoms fully in bloom. The National Cherry Blossom Parade takes place in D.C. on April 8 in celebration of these famous trees.

Kawachi Fujien Wisteria Garden 

Kawachi Fujien is a private wisteria garden established in 1977. Peak season to spot these beauties is during the months of April and May in Kitakyushi, Japan. The garden’s most prominent features are two long tunnels made entirely of wisteria trees. What a dream!

    LOVE the spring colours too, only seen them in London and Paris but keukenhof is on my list, and the pink blossom street in Bonn, Germany too!

    Spring is one of my favourite times of year and I just love seeing everything bloom after the winter. I think it’ll have to be my goal to travel in Spring just to see the blossoms!
