Date Nights DC Itinerary: Social & Responsible

Do

Concerned about climate change—or ready to spark a little friendly debate? Start your socially-responsible date with a visit to the Koshland Science Museum. As the official museum of the National Academy of Sciences, the museum’s permanent collection explores timely topics like global warming, water pollution and healthy living in an engaging manner.

Do

For a big screen conversation starter, catch a documentary at the Samuel C. Johnson IMAX Theater at the National Museum of Natural History

Eat

A short walk will bring you to Central Michel Richard, a modern American bistro with a French twist. Innovative dishes include the lobster burger, Michel’s famed fried chicken and the grilled cheese with mushroom sandwich.

Stay

Spend a night in the 100% wind-powered, eco-focused (and iconic) Willard InterContinental Washington, which has been recognized by publications such as National Geographic Traveler and Conde Nast Traveler for its leadership in environmental initiatives.
