When the opportunity came around to partner with the DC Circulator to go see the stunning Cherry Blossoms in the city, I jumped at it. My family and I love the Cherry Blossoms. They are our favorite thing to see every year and this year we got to go downtown on the Blossom Bus. It was such an easy and stress-free process. Normally, seeing the blossoms is a pain, transportation wise. I had no idea about the affordable ($1) bus option, it was truly a life saver!
Char, Ry, and me hopped on the bus mid-day and hit the town! We let the kiddo play hooky, so of course, we were immediately bumped up to parents of the year in her book. No school for a family field trip to see flowers? Yes, please! The bus ride was easy and smooth, too. There were a few other riders but for the most part, it was empty. The driver let us off right in front of the blossoms, which was extremely convenient. The minute we stepped off the Blossom Bus, Char was in awe like she is every year.
The blossoms were beautiful! We had an awesome time downtown exploring.
I would highly suggest trying the blossom bus next year when the beautiful trees are in bloom. Also, if you can, go mid-week. There were no crowds or pushing to see the blossoms. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves and are excited to go back next year!
