Is it just me, or is Spring flying by? I can’t believe that the Cherry Blossoms will be hitting peak bloom next week (they should peak on or around April 1st!)
As a local, I don’t necessarily love the massive influx of tourists and traffic that come along with Cherry Blossom season. To be candid, I only visit once every 2-3 years because it’s pretty intense! However, I do love how the whole city comes alive this time of year: we all tend to hibernate during the winter and come late March, we all come out of hiding because are so many new and exciting things to do in town.
If you’re planning a trip to D.C. to visit the Cherry Blossoms this year, or if you’re local and want to join in on the festivities, there are plenty of things to do in and around town outside of the Tidal Basin. Here are some of the best things to do in D.C. in the Spring!
