Praktisk info

United States Botanic Garden ligger på Maryland Avenue i Southwest DC. Det övervakas av Förenta staternas kongress genom Capitolens arkitekt. Det började fungera 1821, vilket gjorde det till den äldsta botaniska trädgården i landet. Inträde är gratis för alla gäster och webbplatsen är öppen varje dag från 10:00 till 17:00. Trots att trädgården inte har någon särskild parkeringsplats finns gatuparkering överallt i området. Den närmaste Metrorail-stationen är Federal Center, som ligger 3 kvarter bort och serverar Orange och Blue Lines.
