Cherry Blossom/Smithsonian- Washington, D.C.
Sat,March 28 @ 6:30 am - 10:45 pm$50
We are heading to our nation’s Capital, Washington, D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival. You can be dropped off at the Tidal Basin and stroll at your leisure taking in the beautiful sights of the Cherry Blossoms. The festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington D.C. If you are interested in going to the National Mall it will serve as a backdrop as thousands of kites take flight during the annual Blossom Kite Festival. Held on the grounds of the Washington Monument, this event is a spectacle to see and one you don’t want to miss!! After you enjoy the kites you can visit the Smithsonian. Two great options to choose from for a fun day in Washington, D.C. or if you don’t mind the walk you can do both. Please dress appropriately for the weather and where you will be spending the day.
