If you’re seeing pink in D.C., that’s not the liquor talking or rose-colored glasses. It must be cherry blossom time! And we’re not talking ordinary, spot-them-anywhere blooms. No sir! The National Cherry Blossom Festival draws visitors to Washington D.C. by the thousands.
The Festival – which runs through April 14 – includes popular activities like Petalpalooza (April 6) featuring a day of live music at the Wharf and the spectacular National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade (April 13) down Constitution Avenue. In addition to a full round-up of events, the NCBF website keys visitors in to a series of D.C. businesses and experiences that get their pink on for the Cherry Blossom season. Want to experience the “city in bloom?” Click here for a bunch of ways to do it.
If you’re visiting, in addition to taking in the sites, monuments, make it a union stay. Quality hotels like the Phoenix Park, the Beacon and the Madison stand ready to welcome their guests and you can search the Labor 411 Directory for a number of outstanding restaurants and other attractions that will put a cherry (blossom) on top of a memorable stay.
Enjoy the blooms!
