If you’re planning to spend Valentine’s Day in Washington, we’ve got you covered with some tips and guidance on where to celebrate your romance. Here are our top five recommendation for a romantic Valentine’s Day in DC.
Start The Day With A Luxurious Brunch
While Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy a delicious weekday morning meal to start off the day right. Our pick for the best weekday brunch in the city is Gallery Place’s The Smith, which serves classic fresh-off-the-griddle options like waffles and buttermilk pancakes along with a plethora of egg platters.

Take A Stroll Around DC’s Most Beautiful Attractions
While February in DC can get snowy, it’s never too chilly for a walk around the city. Take your significant other on a tour of some of the city’s most stunning spots, including the quaint Georgetown neighborhood. Pick up a hot cup of java from one of the neighborhood’s many coffee shops, like Saxbys, to keep yourself warmed up.

Take A Trip To A Museum
If you’d rather avoid the outdoors entirely, head to one of the District’s many (mostly free) museums, where you and your loved one can take in the art hand-in-hand. We recommend checking out the Hirshhorn, which specializes in modern art, as the pieces will give you plenty to talk about.

Catch A Show Together
Head out for a night of culture with a date to the theater. You and your Valentine’s Day date can sit side-by-side in the audience while you take in a show like the Kennedy Center’s West Side Story, as performed, by the NSO Pops. You’ll love getting to enjoy the songs that make up this romantic story together.

Go For A Romantic Dinner
Finish off your day with the all-time Valentine’s Day tradition of a romance-filled dinner together. The Tredici Enoteca, located in the hotel’s lobby, only steps from your room, is the perfect place to share a meal together. Split a bottle of wine and order some Mediterranean appetizers for an intimate night together.
