Explore the District Beyond the Blossoms with DC Circulator

DC Circulator Cherry Blossom Festival Campaign

The National Cherry Blossom Festival will be celebrated from March 20 to April 12, 2015. During the festival, the whole city is in bloom! There is so much to enjoy in Washington DC, and the Festival partners with restaurants and attractions throughout DC to bring the spirit of the season to the entire city!

With so much happening all over the District, the DC Circulator is your ticket to getting out and exploring the District beyond the blossoms! Our five routes connect exciting neighborhoods all over the city, from Georgetown to Downtown, Adams Morgan to Capitol Hill and beyond.


Got a craving? You’re in luck. The District has no equal when it comes to cuisine. Whether you’re grabbing brunch at a bistro in Adams Morgan, sampling global cuisine in DuPont or trying tapas in Penn Quarter, DC has you covered for every meal of the day!


DC doesn’t slow down just because the sun sets! You can catch an event at the Verizon Center in Chinatown, hit the club scene on K Street, or check out a trendy bar on U Street. The only thing holding you back at night in DC is your imagination.


When you plan a trip to DC, it should be required to set aside some extra time for shopping. From large department stores Downtown to small clothing boutiques in Georgetown, nowhere does fashion quite like the neighborhoods of DC.

National Zoo

The National Zoo in Cleveland Park is one of DC’s biggest attractions.  Of course it would need to be big in order to call itself home to giant pandas, Asian elephants, lions and a huge assortment of other exciting insects, amphibians, reptiles and mammals; and the best part is admission is completely free every day of the week!

Eastern Market

Located in historic Capitol Hill, Eastern Market is a must see when visiting DC. It offers fresh produce, meat, cheeses, flowers and baked goods. Even better, stop by on a weekend when the market moves outdoors to include an awesome flea market including arts and crafts you’ll only find at DC’s premiere food and arts market!

Monuments & Memorials

DC is home to some of the country’s most recognized and historical monuments. Visit the National Mall to see the iconic Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument or take a tour of the entire District to experience all the monuments lining the streets and parks of our nation’s capital.


The District has an awesome variety of museums for you to explore. From the Air and Space Museum to the Postal Museum there’s a little something for everyone. Visit www.si.edu for more information on the Smithsonian museums, all of which are completely FREE to visit!
