Every spring, more than 1.5 million visitors head to Washington, D.C. to see the city's 3,000+ cherry trees — a 1912 gift from Tokyo to Washington, DC — in full bloom.
Over the years, the cherry blossoms have become a point of national pride. They're at the heart of an annual festival that welcomes the beginning of spring. Since it began in 1935, the Festival has grown from a modest affair to a three-week extravaganza, earning its reputation as the nation’s greatest springtime celebration.
This trip will include both staying with an American host family, and attending an American church service on Sunday morning - two experiences we think you will greatly enjoy!You must be 18 years or older to go on this trip.
Blossoming depends on weather conditions. So, the amount of Cherry flowers we'll see on the trees will depend on that.
