Hi, we're in DC for christmas, and my sister will be watching our little kids so my husband and I can go out for a night. We will be staying at river in which is in downtown DC. Any ideas for a nice romantic evening.

Hi Bonnie, I have lots of ideas but need a bit more information. Were you hoping for a restaurant recommendation? If so, what type of cuisine and price range? If not a restaurant, what type of activity were you hoping for?

I think DC is a very romantic city, so I'm sure you will have a great evening no matter what you do.

The River Inn is in the Foggy Bottom area, not really downtown. And what is more romantic than a foggy bottom? LOL

Ideas of what is "romantic" vary widely. What one person calls romantic another will call a cliche'. You need to give us a bit more information about your expectations. And are you thinking about Christmas Day or some other day? On Christmas Day with so much closed, your options are going to be diminished.

How about a horse and carriage ride through Washington DC's mall area looking at the monuments all lit up and decorated for Christmas?

Add a dusting of snow and romance would definitely be in the air.
