Affordable Spring Break Day Trips

March 28, 2018

Cold days are behind us and DC is celebrating with tons of free events near your ROSS affordable DC apartment!

Spring has sprung (allegedly) and we can’t wait for the (eventual) warm weather. Even though us East Coasters just got hit with our biggest snow of the season, warm weather events are in the near future! We’ve rounded up some day trips near your affordable DC apartment that are fun for the whole family.

Perhaps the most popular event in all of Washington, DC, the Cherry Blossom Festival, returns at the end of March, running through the beginning of April. This festival features over 200 cultural demonstrations – many of which are free – attracting tourists from near and far. The month-long festivities culminate in an epic ending at the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade on April 14. The free parade includes colorful floats, a marching band, street performers, horses, clowns and more! Immediately following the parade, check out the Japanese Street Festival from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sample cultural delicacies, browse through Japanese art and merchandise, and take in the international traditions. The festival is located at 1st, N and Tingey Streets, SE, Washington, DC, near Nationals Park. Head over the weekend before for the inaugural Petalpalooza on April 7 at The Wharf for free outdoor music and entertainment, too!

If you’re looking for some festive holiday fun near your affordable DC apartment, then make your way to The White House Easter Egg Roll on Easter Monday. Tickets are free and given out through an online lottery. If you win, you and your family will enjoy story time, pictures with the Easter Bunny and an epic Easter Egg Hunt on The White House lawn.

The month of May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and DC celebrates with the massive National Asian Heritage Festival. Head over and enjoy Asian arts and culture, inexpensive street food, and free cultural demonstrations and performances! A quick drive from your affordable DC apartment, this festival screams spring fun for the whole family!

Take a day trip to Shenandoah for the Apple Blossom Festival from April 27 – May 6. Kids (and parents!) can enjoy carnival rides, face painting, live music, dancing, a pie-baking contest and even a contest featuring unusual talents. An easy drive from your affordable DC apartment and family memories that will last a lifetime!
