Date Nights DC Itinerary: Puppy Love

  • PRINT

DO
With acres of park land and dozens of dog-friendly businesses, a date in DC is a treat for any pampered pooch. Liven up your walking routine with a stroll along the National Mall – remember a leash! Keep your nose to the ground and try to track first dogs Bo and Sunny Obama.

DO
Swing by the Korean War Veterans Memorial and see if you can sniff out the German Shepherd included among the granite etchings. Be sure to also visit the FDR Memorial on the west side of the Tidal Basin for a photo op with the statue of FDR's Scottish Terrier, Fala.

DO
You—and your dog—won’t be able to resist the tempting smells of Eastern Market. While dogs aren’t allowed inside the historic building, you’ll see many tails wagging outside, where more than 100 exhibitors set up shop each weekend.

EAT
And there’s no need for a doggie bag when you order up a delicious meal at Art and Soul; dogs are welcome on the patio and get their own menu with items like Bowser beer.

STAY
Call it a night at Sofitel Washington just steps from the White House, where pets are given the presidential treatment - including silver water bowls.
