Cupid’s Corner: Our Favorite Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

CupidWith our many beautiful apartment communities located in and around Washington, D.C., there is never a shortage of fun things to do! We have created a list of our favorite ways to celebrate the year’s loveliest holiday, Valentine’s Day.

Spend Time Together

Valentine’s Day is meant to be spent with the ones you love, so take some time to explore the many great nearby entertainment options. You can take in a romantic concert at the Strathmore or cozy up with a romantic movie at one of our many nearby theatres. Make time to relax with a peaceful massage, or get active and share a skate around the ice rink.

Enjoy a Delicious Meal

There is no shortage of fantastic restaurants near our many communities, and we think that Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to spend an evening enjoying delicious food and drinks at an amazing nearby spot. Many locations are offering special Valentine’s menus, and we recommend trying Not Your Average Joe’s, Redwood Restaurant and Bar, or La Tasca for great deals and exciting menus.

Treat Yourself

It’s important to take some time for yourself. Get pampered at the Rodi Salon with a Valentine’s Day blowdry and makeup special, or enjoy a relaxing chocolate facial at the Equinox Spa. You can also treat yourself to some shopping and take advantage of the many specials at nearby shops like Bethesda Row and Mosaic District.

Indulge Your Sweet Tooth

Who doesn’t love a sweet treat on Valentine’s Day? Our communities are located near many fantastic bakeries and pastry shops, along with being a very short distance from downtown to D.C. This year, indulge in some delicious cupcakes with a tasty Valentine’s Cupcake Assortment from Georgetown Cupcake, or take an adventurous approach with a walking Chocolate Tour of Washington, D.C. If you’re looking for something closer to home, try any of the fantastic local bakeries such as Amphora Bakery, Classic Bakery, or Tout de Sweet Pastry Shop.
