Washington DC

Next Destination? DC for Cherry Blossoms! ย *Perfect Weekend hot spot for April!!!

Last spring I went to DC to visit one of my girlfriends, and since it was my first time to DC, I was dying to see the beautiful Cherry Blossoms ๐Ÿ™‚ So every year they set a date for all of the activity to take place on- but this does not necessarily mean that this is when the Cherry Blossoms will be in full bloom. I studied the Cherry Blossoms past history on the National Park Services Website and looked at the comparison of when the trees typically bloomed depending on the past winters weather. I managed to pick the exact weekend they were in full bloom- and it was Gorgeous! I will always have such high standards of DC now ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  Since it was my first time to visit DC, I wanted to see as much I could โ€” to name a few, All of the memorials, the White House, the museums (Specifically the Smithsonian, but we went to about 3), the Capitol ย and exploring Georgetown. I flew in late on a Friday night and left late on Sunday nightโ€” we covered a LOT of ground and itโ€™s totally doable! Just map out everywhere you want to see and strategize.

The cupcakes and granola at Baked and Wired were amazing (yes, this was our breakfast), and I loved our brunch at Founding Farmers. Definitely would recommend both places!! We also went out at night to a bar/club, which I suggest just to see how DCโ€™s โ€œgoing outโ€ atmosphere differs from wherever you are from.

*Bring Comfortable shoes!! I wore converse, and life was great for my feet.

We also took the underground train everywhere and it was so helpful to escape traffic! ย HAVE FUN (& Thanks Rose for a Great weekend) ย ! ๐Ÿ™‚
