Protect Your Bubble Shares its Guide to DC for Cherry Blossom Festival
Travel insurance brand shares tips for D.C.-bound travelers.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
The National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. is one of the finest in the nation. Protect Your Bubble, travel insurance brand and, has a list of five great travel tips to make this vacation one to remember for a good, long while.
Time the visit – Cherry trees begin blooming in March, but the height of the blooming days is March 26 through April 3. The website for the National Cherry Blossom Festival has details, schedule and events already posted, and the event runs from the 26th to the 10th of April. Many schools have Spring Break around this time, so it is an ideal time.
- Crowds – It is D.C. after all, so crowds are almost unavoidable. Note the ‘almost’ part. Catch the early morning’s rays at the Tidal Basin by the National Mall or plan on an evening stroll. Either way, crowds are much more likely to be thinner at those two times. If it is on a Spring Break, even better, because most of D.C. is working, or should be.
- Dress in layers and comfortable shoes – The early spring in D.C. can be chilly and warm quickly. Leave the heavy winter jacket at home and definitely do not wear bulky pants. Since there is a lot to see on foot, wear sneakers or walking shoes to take in most everything. Bring a backpack with shorts in it; put the jacket in there when done.
- Bring food – The Tidal Basin is quite removed from delis and restaurants, but pack a sandwich and a blanket for a picnic on the greens. It is cheap, fun and a great way to continue enjoying the sights, sounds and people in D.C. Once done, throw everything back in the backpack and continue on the sight seeing.
- Avoid driving if possible – Parking in D.C. is a nightmare and traffic is doubly so. Unless there are plans to get up exceptionally early and leave exceptionally late, driving can be difficult. The Metro is good but still plan on walking. Hail a cab is fine, but fares get expensive quickly. Ultimately, the decision rests on the wallet.
