D.C. Cherry Blossoms

Need a day off campus before final exams kick in? Consider taking a day trip to Washington D.C. to see the sights and enjoy the cherry blossom trees, which are currently in full bloom. Though this is the second latest peak bloom since 1992, due mostly to the cold temperatures late into March, they are now fully blossomed and ready to be seen, and all the more reason to go what with the recent summer-like weather the area’s been seeing. D.C. has a lot to offer in addition to the cherry blossoms, and there are plenty of wallet-friendly options for students. The monuments are fun to see, the Smithsonian Institute museums are all free, the national mall, and nearby Georgetown for good restaurants and shopping. Not to mention, getting there is cheap on the Marc train, as tickets are only $7 per trip.
