Despite the summer humidity, D.C. is an amazing place to be in the summer because of all the activities that are at your fingertips. Whether you are visiting from out of town or you’re a local of the metro area, take advantage of what the city has to offer you! Today, we are here to share some of our favorite summer activities—when we’re not crafting floral arrangements and bouquets, of course.

Outdoor Movies. There is nothing better than setting up your own picnic outside and watching one of your favorite movies. The majority of neighborhoods throughout D.C. offer amazing movie nights during the summer. Pack the perfect picnic, bring a blanket and enjoy being outside watching a classic movie!

Brew at the Zoo. Now, this event does not happen all summer, but it is one of our favorite ways to spend a summer evening in D.C. It’s on July 20th and more than 70 craft breweries head over to the Smithsonian National Zoo to raise money for animal conservation. There is also live music, games and animals to enjoy while you’re there!

Citi Open. Do you enjoy watching tennis? Do you like being outside? Well, then, going to the Citi Open this summer is the perfect activity for you. From July 29th – August 6th tickets are available to watch tennis stars compete for the title of the Citi Open tournament.

Enjoy a concert. There are so many options when it comes to hearing great music and seeing some of your favorite artists. Check out what D.C. has to offer this summer. One of the shows we are looking forward to this summer is Kendrick Lamar on July 21st at the Verizon Center.

Summer Festivals. It wouldn’t be a D.C. summer without an opportunity to combine all of your favorite activities outside…music, food and drinking! Washington D.C. has a festival practically every weekend in the summer, so take advantage!

We know it happens every year but that doesn’t make us any less excited! The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. will be happening on the first day of Spring this year. How fitting! It will begin on Friday, March 20th and will run through Sunday, April 12th. If you’re interested in learning about the history of the festival check out Nosegay’s blog that explains everything. The short version is the cherry blossom trees were a gift from the Mayor of Tokyo to Washington, D.C. in the early 1900s. They were a gift to represent the friendship between the United States and Japan.

Keep in mind that during these few weeks throughout the festival, there are a ton of great events that happen. Make sure to plan in advance so you can go to some of the fabulous events:

  • Pink Tie Party Fundraiser on Thursday, March 19th at the Ronald Reagan Building and the International Trade Center.
  • Opening Ceremony on Saturday, March 21st. This event has ton of great performers and is even FREE to the public, however, tickets have been on sale since the beginning of this year so act fast! The ceremony will take place at the Warner Theatre.
  • Blossom Kite Festival on Saturday, March 28th.
  • Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival on Saturday, April 4th.
  • National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade on Saturday, April 11th. This infamous parade takes place  on Constitution Avenue from 7th to 17th Street. You can pay for ground seating or stand along the parade route and watch for free. There is a ton of energy during this event and if there is one thing we recommend not missing from the Cherry Blossom Festival it’s definitely this one.
  • Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival on Saturday, April 11th.

If you are looking for more information on the Cherry Blossom Festival make sure to visit the official homepage of this traditional time in our nation’s capitol. The great news about all of this is you don’t have to go to any of the events to truly embrace the cherry blossoms. You can see them at any time of day once they bloom! It’s been predicted that the peak bloom will happen around April 11th. But be ready! They always come earlier than we think.
