Explore Historic Neighborhoods

From historic homes to quaint waterfront streets lined with boutiques and cafes, Wahsington’s architecture is diverse. See the highlights at a more relaxed pace, and avoid having to ask strangers to take photos of you, on a private walking tour.

In a town filled with gourmet restaurants and wine bars, don’t miss the chance to indulge in a night out. Enjoy cocktails on a rooftop bar overlooking the city, sample diverse flavors on a food tour, or explore the surrounding vineyards on a winery tour. 

Stop to Smell the Cherry Blossoms

For the ultimate romantic experience in Washington, DC, visit when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, which is typically over March and April. When the trees are flowering, the National Mall is typically full of visitors so leave the crowds behind and take your sweetheart on a hand-in-hand stroll through the peaceful, blossom-filled East Potomac Park.
