Spring is the nicest time to visit the nation’s capital, for a number of reasons. The cherry blossoms are in bloom after winter, and all kinds of activities and attractions welcome visitors on holiday, spring break and school trips. If you’re visiting in spring, DC Trails has a number of bus tours in Washington, DC geared towards helping you take full advantage of the festivities on offer. Here’s a short list of things you can see and do on your trip:
- Try a Hop On Hop Off Tour
The best way to check out as many attractions and activities as possible, these tours cover the top neighborhoods, museums, and memorials, allowing you to decide how much time you want to spend at each of them. It’s great for families and those who have specific things they would like to see. Best of all, our buses are climate-controlled and extremely comfortable.
- Visit George Washington’s Mount Vernon
The home of America’s first President gives you great insights into what our country was like in the eighteenth century. The place has been carefully restored and lets you visit its beautiful gardens, spend time inside its stunning rooms and even stop by historic spots like the slave quarters.
- Ride the Capital Wheel
This revolving observation deck is 180 feet tall and gives you the best possible views of the DC Metro area. If you like photography, it’s hard to find better views anywhere else in the city.
- Madame Tussauds DC
You don’t have to be rich and famous to get a photograph taken with some of the most celebrated people on Earth. This iconic landmark houses wax models of presidents, movie and pop stars, along with a host of other famous people.
- National Cherry Blossom Festival
Usually held between March and April, this month-long celebration of the city’s gorgeous cherry blossoms also offers visitors a number of activities, including a parade!
