A Capital Spring

Cherry blossoms and outdoor fun – make the most of spring in DC, and don’t miss out on exclusive one-of-a-kind offers.

Washington, DC hosts the nation’s greatest springtime celebration, the National Cherry Blossom Festival, in honor of the blooming of the city’s beautiful cherry blossom trees, which reached peak bloom on March 17, according to National Park Service. But spring in the nation’s capital holds so much more: cutting-edge theater performances, outdoor revelry in Rock Creek Park and on the waterfronts and a mouthwatering dining scene. It’s no wonder spring is the perfect time to make monumental memories in the District.
