    Oh, I mean Cherry Blossoms! And with the cherry blossoms come the crowds. Pack your patience if you plan to head downtown this weekend for the annual Cherry Blossom parade as you won’t be alone!

    Cherry Blossoms DC

    Here are three websites to visit if you are looking for information about current events in the city and around the DC area.

    National Cherry Blossom Festival this website is your go to resource for all things cherry blossom. Be sure to check out the specific Blossom Kids tab.

    Red Tricycle  is a great resource and one I use regularly to stay in the know. You can sign up to receive an email each week with a list of weekend activities. This is a great resource all year long, not just during the cherry blossom season.

    KidFriendly DC is another great year round resource with lots of ideas for activities in DC and especially around the DC area. Check it out today for their tips on visiting the Cherry Blossoms. You can also sign up for a twice weekly email that gives you a list of week day and weekend activities.

    My Cherry Blossom tip? Leave your car at home and go early in the morning. Have fun out there!
