At a glance: Gardens are one of the most romantic places to take your sweetheart out on a date! If you're visiting Washington D.C. this is a lovely stop to make-and best of all, it's free, and open year round! Did you come to DC wanting to see the Cherry Blossoms but they're not in bloom yet? Or maybe you came in winter and there's just no vegetation around, or in the hot muggy summer? Well come inside to the botanic gardens instead and enjoy beautiful flowers and plants all year! The place as a whole isn't that big, you can walk through it in about an hour, or spend more time gazing at all the beauty around you and relax on one of the many benches throughout.
Highlights of this romantic activity include:
♥ The Botanic gardens has many different exhibits and climates that you can walk through such as tropical, desert, Mediterranean, and you can even walk up on a platform in the canopy near the tree tops!
♥ You're also allowed to take as many photos as you'd like, and in certain spots they have some gorgeous flower arches-perfect for a selfie with the love of your life!
♥ It's all FREE of charge!
