National Arboretun now closed Tues. - Thurs. - Sequestration

Due to sequestration, the National Arboretum is now closed Tues. - Thurs. Those of you who have congressional representatives (we in DC do not) might want to do something about it.

Thanks for the update. We are coming Memorial Day weekend and plan to visit the Arboretum. We will aim for Sun. Would you recommend driving? We do have access to a car.

The very best way to see the National Arboretum is by driving. It is the easiest way to get there and there are miles of roads inside that go to the various collections and driving is the best way too. Yes, drive.

Very helpful info Darrell. I had no idea you could drive inside. My cousin has read about herb garden and really wants to see it.

The National Arboretum is over 400 acres big. Lots to see. Here is their website: http://www.usna.usda.gov/

Driving is pretty much the only way, unless you are a stalwart cyclist. The place is huge and the different groves are spaced all over the place. You drive to one area, park, walk around. Each area could be up to a mile of walking depending on how much you want to see. Don't miss the Conifer collection!
