If you are you looking for a beautiful, fun peak spring activity, then check out the awesome Greenport Cherry Blossom Festival on Long Island. Cherry Blossoms are some of my favorite things…period. The beauty and the arrival of spring is unparalleled. But, as you may know, the beauty is fleeting. Once they pop, you have maybe two weeks to really enjoy them. So…you better get out to Greenport ASAP then!! Haha.
About the Greenport Cherry Blossom Festival
The second Greenport Cherry Blossom Festival Petal Tour is a self-guided walking tour of the village’s 350-plus cherry (and pear) trees in full bloom. If that’s enough (though it pretty much is), local merchants will be offering cherry blossom inspired drinks, food & merch items. Support nature, Greenport, and their hardworking local business owners.
