TakeTours is thrilled to announce the 2014 release of a spring favorite: Cherry Blossom Tours. These trips will whisk passengers away to the National Cherry Blossom Festival, an annual event which this year takes place from March 20 through April 13. With round-trip transportation from New York, Boston, or Toronto and inclusive hotel accommodations for the overnight trips, DC Cherry Blossom Tours are the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of spring.
The National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the arrival of spring in Washington, DC. The Japanese sakura trees were given by Japan to the United States as a sign of friendship and solidarity in 1912. Since then, the Nation’s Capital draws approximately 1.5 million people from around the world who travel to see the beautiful cherry trees bloom in an array of pink and white that seems to blanket the city.
In addition to viewing the cherry blossoms, travellers can enjoy a myriad of other themed events that take place over the course of the festival: the 4th Annual Blossom Kite Festival on March 29, the Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival on April 5, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade takes place on April 12.
It is important that travellers note the blooming itself lasts only a few days. Last year, the peak time started on April 6. This year, the trees are expected to bloom a bit later due to the prolonged winter in the Northeast. TakeTours.com is offering day tours starting at $22 and overnight tours at $115. 1-day tours run daily from March 15-April 15, while multiday tours from New York have Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday departures; from Boston have Friday departures; and from Toronto have Saturday departures.
