Date Nights DC Itinerary: You Otter Know


Some people love puppies and kittens, but nothing’s as sweet as an otter. Walk the National Zoo’s Asia Trail and watch the antics of the four amusing Asian small clawed otters. They roll! They chirp! They love each other!


Take a page out of the otter playbook and indulge in icy shellfish. Brasserie Beck serves a classic tower. Otters eat crabs, mussels and shrimp, and so do the lucky guests at Beck.


Travel in a group, just like our favorite furry cutie pies, and book a treasure hunt with more than 100 rooms and 32 secret doors to explore, and a dinner at the Mansion on O Street. Groups must book ahead.


Cuddle up at the Eldon, a boutique suites hotel. Some rooms are large enough for six, including the Penthouse. That otter do!
