If you do not want to go to Washington DC one of the biggest Cherry blossom festivals in the US is just kicking off in Macon Georgia. The city is Ante-Bellum and just a real gem from the beauty of the Cherry Blossom Festival to the architecture of the homes. It is also amazing what 200 feet in altitude and 130 miles south will do to making spring come early to an area.
We were there visiting friends this week. If you are in the area next weekend will probably be good for the beautiful tress as well. Enjoy
