Below are the top three outdoor places which dating couples touring Washington DC can opt to visit anytime soon and spend their memorable timeouts. The city capital is replete with many tourist destinations, but these at the outskirts of DC may be enough to satisfy your appetite.
The Chesapeake Beach for Partying
The sandy beach town in Maryland, about an hour’s drive from DC, is worth a visit as a weekend getaway. The North Beach community settlement around one block away from the town area, has a boardwalk. It plays host to outdoor parties for residents of the neighborhood, and has a farmers’ market which opens on Fridays at 6:00 pm, hosting a car show and other entertainment such as live music.
The Great Falls Park for Outdoor Recreation
The tributary of Potomac River falls over a line of uneven and steep rocks with speed at Great Falls, which creates a natural view that is best enjoyed with a lover. Reaching this park and waterfall point takes around half an hour or so, but the mansions lined up along the George Washington Memorial Parkway is there as a wildlife habitat of sorts. The park charges a $3 entrance fees to access it, and park the vehicle, the cost of which varies according to the number of passengers.
Paddle Boating at Tidal Basin
The West Potomac Park is home to plenty of cherry trees that blossom during springtime. The Cherry Blossom trees, as they’re called, are lined up along the national park, creating an ideal background for those riding the reservoir boat in early April with a girlfriend. The park is nearby several tourist attractions covered in Washington Monument tours, such as Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and World War II memorial. So, whenever you paddle a boat during offseason, the views to the best attractions in DC should not be missed at any cost. Note that the paddle boats provided by Tidal Basin reservoir come at a per-hour rate for two passengers, which is an ideal window of time especially for dating couples. If you feel tired after touring Washington DC thus far, grab a bite at a concession store here and get seated on a bench lined up along the Potomac River to get sweeping views while eating your snack.
