Cherry blossoms are one of the great joys of spring. Washington DC, Brooklyn, and a number of cities across Japan are famous for cherry blossom festivals that inspire people to get out and picnic under a canopy of pink and white flowers.
Yet when it comes to the city with the most cherry trees, and therefore the most cherry blossoms, Macon, Georgia, is far and away the winner. Macon has more than 350,000 Yoshino cherry trees. That’s more than double the population of the city (150,000) and many times the 3000-or-so cherry trees in DC, which is widely known for its cherry blossoms every year.
