  • PRINT

DO
Aimez-vous DC? Show your love by exploring its French connections. They’re on display at The Phillips Collection including the monumental masterpiece, “Luncheon of the Boating Party.”

DO
From the Gallery, stroll over to the Old Post Office Pavilion for a magnifique view of DC’s grand boulevards and sweeping green spaces from up in the clock tower. You’ll see how DC was designed to be reminiscent of Paris by French military officer Pierre Charles L’Enfant.

EAT
Reserve a table for two aboard Entertainment Cruises’ Odyssey Dinner Cruise on the Potomac. Dine on braised short ribs, or opt for salmon while a live band serenades you and your honey. Sip on local selections of wine and take in the monumental views by moonlight. The Odyssey vessel was designed after the famous Parisian dinner boats.

DO
After a moonlit stroll past the White House, enjoy the French elegance and style of the Sofitel Washington DC Hotel near Lafayette Square.

STAY
When you wake up, walk to Café du Parc, the Willard InterContinental Washington, to wind down your date night with coffee and crepes.
