Springtime in Accessible D.C. – SNG Services the Nation’s Capital

Springtime is the perfect time to visit Washington, D.C.  The Nation’s capital is a wonderful vacation destination rich in American history and unique during the Spring season for its renown National Cherry Blossom Festival.

The Cherry Blossom Festival runs typically between March 15th and April 18th with peak dates being predicted between March 22 through March 25th this year.  The most popular places to view the cherry blossom trees are near the Jefferson Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.  These monuments surround the Tidal Basin Loop Trail which is a perfect location for photos each Spring of the cherry blossoms.

Along with the sites above, D.C. is filled with a plethora of historical and cultural museums, monuments, and locations.  The Smithsonian National Museum of National History, U.S. Capitol, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall are all must-sees on a visit to the Nation’s capital.  A truly memorable and fascinating self-guided tour is that of the FBI Headquarters.  The FBI Experience features interactive multimedia exhibits, content, and artifacts.  The visit is truly worthwhile look into the FBI’s internal operations, history, laboratory resources, investigative divisions along with its role in national security and law enforcement.

Presently, due to the pandemic, the FBI building is presently closed to the public.  However, most of the museums, monuments, and sites have reopened with a limited schedule.

The Nation’s Capital prides itself in being an accessible city.  While all of D.C.’s attractions and historical institutions are welcome to guests with accessible needs, it’s suggested to reach out prior to visiting the respective site regarding its specific accessibility features.
