Start with a morning stroll on the National Mall and through the luscious U.S. Botanic Gardens. Work up your love fever while viewing roses, orchids, tulips and succulents, and get your thirst on while closing out your tour in the cacti garden.
Then head up 7th Street to Rosa Mexicano and cozy up to the bar encased with rose petals, while you enjoy a spirited afternoon of ceviche, fresh made guacamole and frozen pomegranate margaritas.
Then make your way to the National Museum of Women in the Arts to see the portrait that Frida Kahlo gave to her lover, Leon Trotsky.
Wander uptown a few blocks away on 14th Street and enjoy dinner at Masa 14, home of the city’s longest bar (65-feet) and largest selection of tequila and sake.
Then retire to the red hot Hotel Rouge, where a romantic rose petal-strewn (upon request) room awaits.
