Tourists flock to the nation's capital year-round, but most of DC's 24 million visitors travel to the city in spring and summer. Cherry blossom season is short lived (about two weeks in March and April), and the Mall is one of the most popular spots in the country to watch fireworks pop on the Fourth. Aside from six major war and presidential memorials—Thomas Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt, World War II, Korean War Veterans, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial—the National Mall and Memorial Parks area encompasses 150 named historic parks, squares, and triangles; countless history, space, and art museums; and 43 athletic fields. Rain or shine, the paths and parks are always packed with joggers, cyclists, and even Segway riders.
