  • Imagine waking up at one of DC's most luxurious hotels. Start your beloved's day by surprising them with a special breakfast in bed. The day would then involve a tour to some of the iconic landmarks such as the United States Capitol, The Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial. A private sail cruise across the dynamic Potomac River offers captivating sights along the waterfront.
  • As the night draws in, surprise her with a private dance lesson. Celebrate her age in style by embracing the rhythm of the music and the magic of love. Concluding the day is a premium dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant Metier, promising a variety of exquisite cuisines.
  • Finish the weekend retreat by spending a romantic afternoon at the National Gallery of Art, or relaxing at the city's many parks. The entire itinerary promises to bring you closer and strengthen your bond, making this date a memorable one.

Preparation steps:

  • Making reservations in Washington DC's top high-end hotels and restaurants like the Michelin-starred Metier is the first and most crucial task. Book a private sail across the Potomac River during sunset and secure a slot for the private dance lessons. Organize for a surprise birthday breakfast.
  • Planning for a guided tour to the monumental landmarks for an enriching experience would add a unique touch. Also, book tickets to the National Gallery of Art if you plan to go there during your date. If your partner is an art lover, this would be the perfect cherry on the cake.
  • Lastly, purchasing a thoughtful birthday gift or arranging for her favourite bouquet to be delivered to your suite would be a pleasant surprise. Remember, this date is about making her feel special and loved, so go the extra mile to make this day unforgettable.

Some tips:

  • Washington DC has a moderate climate in August, but it's best to check the weather forecast beforehand and pack accordingly. Comfortable walking shoes are needed for the tour and a perfect dress for the dinner cruise and private dance lessons.
  • Ensure your camera is fully charged as the city offers exquisite views worth capturing. Lastly, this treat is all about surprising your partner, keeping your plans hidden until the last minute adds the touch of excitement and surprise which would make the birthday girl feel more special.
  • Remember to personalize the experience; small gestures such as a love note with the breakfast or playing their favourite song during the dance lessons are meaningful and exhibits the thought you put into planning this special day.
