Through the years, I’ve scouted some wonderful locations for my clients based on the changing seasons. Here a few of my favorites:
The Ramble: Behind the Boathouse, there’s a wonderful path called The Ramble that leads to a peninsula overlooking Bethesda Fountain and Bow Bridge from across the lake. Amazing views and fun photo adventure for the kids.
Cedar Hill: At the top of Cedar Hill on the East side, near the 76th Street entrance, is a collection of rocks which leads to a hidden mini-forest. Kids love climbing the rocks and roaming among the trees. Plus, the sunset creates a beautiful and unique halo of light under the canopy of trees.
Belvedere Castle: Always a great spot for photos, but especially scenic in the winter.
West Side Bridle Path: Located between 86th and 90th Streets along the reservoir, this stretch offers the most stunning cherry blossom photos in late April.
