You'd never stall the fast movers on the left side of a Metro escalator or pose for photos in front of the White House, but it's worth playing tourist for a day with today's deal from Capitol River Cruises: Pay $12 and receive two adult tickets for a Cherry Blossom boat trip on the Potomac (a $24 value). Step aboard one of the two Nightingale boats, which push off from the Washington Harbor in Georgetown, for a 45-minute ride that offers unparalleled views of the pink flowers around the Tidal Basin. This marks 100 years since Tokyo gifted DC 3,000 cherry trees, which means the annual festival (this year from March 20 to April 27) will flood the city with more tourists than usual. Thanks to today's deal, though, you'll be at a safe distance from that fanny pack-wearing set -- while still seeing the spring's best sight.
