Cherry blossom fever makes a yearly appearance in DC, but when it comes to enjoying those blooming blossoms, many might overlook one of the easiest ways to see them. Forget the crowds meandering the tidal basin! Book a Potomac River cruise!
The Spirit of Washington is a cruise that caters to those seeking the best of the blossoms – and more. Taking passengers on a relaxing journey on the Potomac, while enjoying lunch or dinner in addition to the District’s delicious sights, cruisers view the blossoms from the best vantage point, passing by favorite landmarks like Reagan National Airport, the 14th Street Bridge, and the Washington Monument.
Casual and low-key, a buffet meal is served as the ship set sail, complete with DJ (or other musical) entertainment, and a chance to chat it up with the ship’s Captain, who’ll certainly have some stories to share!
Didn’t make it in time for peak blossom this year? Don’t fret. The Spirit of Washington cruises year-round, and will offer a special schedule again just in time for next year’s festival.
