Trip Date: Sunday April 12

Registration is now OPEN for the DC Cherry Blossom Tour with ISI and CSSS.  This is the best Spring tour of DC available.  We will travel together in a new 56 passenger bus, which will drop us off right at the monuments and Cherry Blossoms.  We will walk through the flowering cherry trees, take pictures, see the sites and festivities, then we will also get to take pictures in front of the US Capitol, tour the National Botanical Gardens, and visit the WORLD'S LARGEST air and space museum, located near Dulles Airport.
