Although the cold weather may still linger, spring break is rapidly approaching and the opportunities to have fun are never-ending. Spring break falls between Mar. 23 and April 2, 2018, allowing students to have a full week of pre-summer activities in the coming weeks. While many students may moan and groan about how boring Northern Virginia is, there is a multitude of activities to partake in that require little to no money. From going to festivals to simply walking around outside, there is something for everyone to pass the time.

Beginning on Mar. 20, the infamous National Cherry Blossom Festival will debut, bringing millions–not only from across the United States but the world–to witness and celebrate the long lasting friendship between the United States and Japan, and maybe get a couple of nice pictures for Instagram along the way. With Washington D.C. right in our backyard, there is an almost immeasurable amount of museums to visit and practically unknown sights to discover. View the recently unveiled Presidential portraits of former President Barack Obama and Mrs. Michelle Obama at the National Portrait Gallery or visit the velociraptors and wooly mammoths at the National Museum of Natural History. With so much to do, it’s essential to go out and have a nice day in D.C., for the stress of finals will quickly approach following spring break.

If you’re one who likes to go on long walks and enjoy time outdoors, then exploring local trails such as Scotts Run in McLean or Great Falls in Fairfax County is just for you. Make it a day trip with some friends and spend time walking alongside the cascading Potomac River for free, viewing wildlife in its natural habitat on the way at Great Falls. If you’re looking for some fun in the water, then switch on over to Scotts Run and jump in the cooling river located under many waterfalls. Whichever it may be, going out to either won’t be a disappointment and is guaranteed to make a lot of great memories.

Enjoy spring break and get a little taste of summer before the school year ends because before you know it, we’ll be back at Hayfield finishing up the year. So, get out and take advantage of the wonderful area around us by exploring hidden gems.
