Every Spring, the DC area is enriched by a gorgeous display of cherry blossoms. People flock downtown from all over to enjoy a day among the pink blooms, with the bright blue skies as a back drop and the iconic DC landmark buildings. It is truly a site to behold.
There are many wonderful things to see and do downtown, and especially during the days of the Cherry Blossom Festival (March 20 – April 13, 2019) you will find something for everyone and every age group. Think kites, canoeing, biking, parades, boat rides and more.
One of the most enjoyable things to do is have a good old-fashioned picnic. You can take your blanket, even your chairs, pick your spot along the Tidal Basin under the blossoms and settle in for a memorable afternoon. This is an activity for everyone; bring your little ones and capture that perfect Holiday Card moment, enjoy a stroll along the water and settle in for a romantic picnic, get your friends together & pack a frisbee, take some time to decompress from the hustle and bustle of your busy life with your favorite book, and for those of you that don’t miss a moment on social media, do it for the gram! #cherryblossoms
