I remember my very first trip to Washington DC. I was about 10 years old and my sister and I came down from New York with my aunt and uncle for a little road trip. It was the first time I had ventured beyond Pennsylvania or New Jersey (other than to fly to Puerto Rico to visit family) and it was quite an excursion.
I was so impressed by the monuments, the endless array of museums, the souvenirs, the city lights at night, and of course, the White House. But nothing could have prepared me for the beauty and magnificence of the Cherry Blossoms. Unbeknownst to me, those gorgeous trees were in full bloom. It was like being in a spring wonderland! Surreal is probably a good word for it.
I don’t know that you can duplicate the feeling a child has when they interpret something as magical but if there is anything that could do it – other than Disney World – then it’s perhaps the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC.
See the schedule of events and plan a day with your family for an amazing treat!
