Advertised as the 'nation’s greatest springtime celebration', the National Cherry Blossom Festival is already in full swing. Standing as a symbol of friendship between Japan and the United States, after the 1912 donation of 3,000 cherry trees from Japan to our nation’s capital, the cherry blossom heralds the arrival of spring.
Don’t let 640 mile trip from Atlanta to Washington, DC stop you from celebrating this century-long symbol. Grab the family and gas up the car. Whether you are looking for a quick jaunt down the road, a longer day-trip, or a family weekender; there are options for any traveling disposition.
