    A visit to the nation’s capital is on nearly everyone’s bucket list as DC is full of rich history, monumental attractions, and a thriving arts and culinary scene. The United Airlines Rock ‘n’ Roll Washington DC Marathon & ½ Marathon takes place on Saturday, March 10, 2018, right around the time of cherry blossom season. While you’ll want to save your legs for race day, DC neighborhoods are walkable and also easy to access by bike or bus tour. There is plenty to do in DC that extends beyond the race weekend, which could mean a good time for an early spring break or extended weekend to the East Coast.
