I am going on family trip to Washington DC in October. I have my girlfriend flying up to join us for the rest of our trip(she has class the first part of the trip). But what she doesn't know is my family is leaving 1-2 days early and she and I our staying. I plan to propose. Any suggestions on places to pop the question? I was think either the Lincoln or Jefferson Memorial at night because of the lighting, grandeur and lack of crowds. I can't decide on a hotel I wanna do something memorable maybe the Ritz. Also no clue on a nice romantic restaurant. Any and all suggestions would be welcome.
