Every spring, Washington, D.C., is blanketed in pink when each of its thousands of cherry blossoms comes into bloom. To celebrate the event, attend the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which takes place from the last week in March to the second week in April. There, you can view the flowers up close, or participate in a number of festival events, such as the cherry blossom parade, the blossom kite festival, or the Pink Tie Party fundraiser. You’ll want to start your tours early, as the festival brings some 1.5 million visitors to the nation’s capital. You can also enjoy the spring weather in one of these best walking towns the United States has to offer.
With 22 town squares overflowing with Spanish moss, colorful azaleas, spectacular fountains, and historic monuments, Savannah, Georgia, is an obvious springtime destination. Grab a drink on the riverfront and watch the ships come in, or hop on a trolley for an informative tour of the city’s historic district.
