Cherry Picking the Cherry Blossom!

Jump to last reply

My husband I are in Virginia. He can bike all over but can't walk very far due to some old-age related permanent injuries. Not totally incapacitated, but very painful to walk for more than 1/2 mile, especially on uneven terrain. Otherwise we are health nuts. Bummer, though, for the walking.
We would like to take Amtrak into Alexandria or DC. We could drive, but why would we do that other than to take our own bikes? I see there are lots of places to rent bikes or take bike tours, so that seems lots easier than the painful DC driving and resulting $$ for parking at whatever hotel.
Within normal people standards, money is way less of an issue than the "hurts to walk" to a long distance. So say under 300 a night for hotel. Or whatever!
We would like to rent bikes or take one of those bike tours of the blossoms.
We can go during the week.
We are thinking about staying 2 nights.
Without knowing the exact particulars, I am thinking: Train to Union (if staying in DC), then metro to whatever hotel you guys steer me towards. Get a bike (either by prior rental or prior tour arrangement) and tour the tidal basin or, again, whatever area you guys say.
I've stayed in in Alexandria recently and loved it, but was wanting a new experience of DC with staying somewhere where we can see the blossoms from the window of our hotel. HA! No really! And even if completely booked for this year, that is something that would be good to know for future years.
When I stayed in Alexandria, I took a food tour. Loved it. Any ideas of other things to do that don't require loads of walking?
Is this a doable shortie vacation? Or am I looking at the whole thing thru rose-colored glasses? If I've waited too late for this year, that's ok, could still do next year perhaps. Any biking suggestions or short walk or places to visit? It's really really hard to plan a vacation without having FEET!!!! This is a new situation, so I'm trying my best to find fun outdoors/indoors non-walking things to do that aren't completely sedentary.
Thanks. You guys always come thru for me.
