After a long, cold winter, Fort Belvoir blossoms continue to erupt. Large clouds of white blossoms from the cherry trees came first, in early April. They marked just the first wave of color however, as the pink Kwanzan cherry trees followed in mid-April. 

Seeing Cherry Blossoms bloom are just one of many sights and activities families can see when stationed at Fort Belvoir. Besides the Cherry Blossoms to see on post, there’s George Washington’s Mount Vernon and the Workhouse Arts Center, both within a few miles of post. There are also many museums, festivals, activities, shows and sporting events in Washington D.C., Maryland and the Northern Virginia area. 

MWR’s Leisure Travel Services, located in the Community Center, can provide tickets for many of these events, at discounted prices for eligible patrons. LTS is open Tues.-Fri., 8 a.m.-6 p.m. For more, call them at 703-805-3714.
