Washington DC

My family and I booked a week vacation a while ago hoping to catch the cherry blossom from April 6th-13th. How's DC right now? I know all of the Smithsonian Museums are closed but from the Washington DC covid page, there seems a decent amount of places opened at partial capacity . But is it still worth going right now? Or should we reschedule?

In door dining is open.

I was in georgetown 2 weeks ago and the streets were pretty busy.

You should be aight but always double check with rule and what's open.


I would also try to get reservations for every restaurant you really want to go to as well

if it were me, id would do like 3-4 days...unless you have some side treks planned, one week will crawl by with little to do (admittedly i havent been paying much attention to DC since I left last fall so not sure what is open)

i think restaurants can serve alcohols til midnight

Thanks for the responses. Definitely going to check it out. It's not our first time so the musuems aren't a big deal.

The city is pretty open right now. Indoor restaurants are supposed to be a 25% capacity but the spots near my apartment have been pretty full.

Best to check out the mall and monuments during the week. If you plan on renting a car, I’d recommend checking out some of the historical areas outside of the city such as Fort Washington Park, Mount Vernon or even Monticello if you don’t mind the drive.
