Just Back From
Whispers of springtime are in the air, and as the afternoons fill with sunshine and timid buds stretch their faces towards the light—and vaccination rates continue to rise—the culture capitals of the East Coast are shrugging off their coats of snow and coming back to life. Particularly in bloom is Washington, D.C.: the clouds have lifted over Pennsylvania Avenue, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival is in full swing, with peak pink flowering expected next weekend (through April 10). The District has always been one of our favorite destinations for a long weekend getaway, but it delights all the more this season—especially if you are just beginning to travel again and are looking to stay close to home. From quiet, cobblestoned Georgetown, where the Rosewood has debuted townhouse residences for the ultimate private stay, to the rapidly developing Navy Yard—the new “it” neighborhood, offering exceptional additions to D.C.’s already prolific restaurant scene—a visit to the nation’s capital offers a first taste of a city in revival. It’s the spring escape you’ve been hoping for. Contact your Indagare Trip Designer or Indagare, if you are not yet a member, to start planning a spring long weekend trip to Washington, D.C.—this year, or whenever you’re ready. Our team can match you with the accommodations and activities that are right for you and provide information on Covid-19 travel safety, Covid-19 hotel policies and more.
Depending on where you’re traveling from, Washington, D.C. can be easily reached by a quick drive, flight or train ride (plus: Amtrak now displays the percentage of seats booked for each upcoming trip, so you can choose a less-trafficked time). Currently, all travelers into the capital should get tested for Covid within 72 hours before traveling, unless they have been vaccinated, have tested positive in the last 90 days and do not have symptoms, or are visiting from Maryland, Virginia, North Dakota or Hawaii. There is still a public mask mandate in effect, and the capital has maintained a steadily cautious approach to lifting Covid-safety restrictions.Related: Covid Travel Outlook 2021: Indagare Travel Sentiment Survey Results
