If you have never been to Washington, D.C. when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom around the Washington Monuments, then you are missing a great sight. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival will take place this year in D.C. around the weekend of April 1.
It is also a great opportunity to take in the other great sights like the Washington, D.C. Museums and Monuments.
Don't forget there is also some great dining within walking distances of the monuments and museums. While there look up events in Washington, D.C. and things to do. It can be a great day or weekend for the family or a group.
