The nation’s capital Washington, DC shines as a romantic destination with the best date ideas, from its award-winning dining scene and outstanding attractions to its scenic monuments and more.

U.S. National Arboretum

Watch your love grow like a tree with a trip to the National Arboretum, a 446-acre living museum brimming with gardens, cherry blossom trees, as well as the original columns of the U.S. Capitol building. One of the most romantic ways to see the Arboretum is during a  full moon hike.

Use your one-of-a-kind charm on your date as you walk through historic Georgetown. The beauty of the  neighborhood’s waterfront, cobblestone sidewalks and grand homes will draw you and that special someone further into this picturesque area.

National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden

Grab your mittens and your sweetie as you ice skate in the middle of the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden. Afterwards, make a beeline for hot chocolate and cookies at the on-site Pavilion Café. In warm weather, this rink transforms into a stunning fountain.

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

A date night at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a must, but be sure to step out during intermission and admire the dazzling cityscape from the the wrap-around terrace. Or you can also keep the Kennedy Center in your sights with a walk along the  Georgetown waterfront.
