With this seemingly never ending winter, one could almost forget that spring is here –technically– and with that comes the Cherry Blossom celebration in our nation’s capital. This year, like those previously, will prove to be full of outdoor activities; tons of walking around around in the city, paddle boating around the Jefferson memorial  –for a great unobstructed view of the cherry blossom trees– and more!

Before heading out into the city to catch a glimpse of the beautiful pink blossom, it is very important to make sure that you are wearing the proper shoes for this occasion. No, we don’t mean the latest spring fashions, but we do mean the most supportive and comfortable shoes –preferably with orthotics.  With standing all day, sometimes in the same place (parade watching)  your feet will become fatigued – and there isn’t always a place to sit down–  so make sure that your shoes give your feet the most in arch support, are sturdy enough in structure, and extremely comfortable. Your feet will thank you later for wearing such shoes.  You can also do the following below throughout the day:

Here are a few links on how to get around in the city during the parade, specifics on dates to visit D.C., and how to maximize your overall cherry blossom experience!
