Date Nights DC Itinerary: Paris on the Potomac


Aimez-vous DC? Show your love by exploring its French connections. They’re on display at The Phillips Collection, which features an expansive collection of French impressionism from artists like Henri Matisse, Paul Cezanne and Vincent van Gogh. Be sure and see Auguste Renoir's famous masterpiece, “Luncheon of the Boating Party.”


Reserve a table for two aboard Entertainment Cruises’ Odyssey Dinner Cruise on the Potomac. The vessel was inspired by the famous Parisian dinner boats that sail down the Seine. On the Potomac, you'll glide by DC landmarks and see the city that was designed by Frenchman Pierre L'Enfant.


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


When you wake up, walk to Café du Parc at the Willard InterContinental Washington and treat your date to coffee and crepes.
