We’re going to go to the Cherry Blossom festival and do a little sight-seeing around the city. Both of my parents are from Virginia, so D.C. is an area I’m pretty familiar with, but it has been a few years since I’ve been and even longer since I’ve played tourist. I haven’t been to some of the major museums since I was a kid, so I’m really looking forward to wandering around and seeing the sites. I think this is the perfect time to walk around the city- the temperatures should be nice and the city is (hopefully) awash in pink blossoms.
The Cherry Blossom festival celebrates the 3,000 cherry trees that the Mayor of Tokyo gifted to the city in 1912. When spring hits and they begin to bloom, the area along the tidal basin is beautiful. And from what I’m reading, the blossoms are at their peak right now.
