Cheap and Easy Date Ideas in the District

DC Dating on a Dime

Comments  (4)

Jun 16, 2012 —  The allure of Washington, DC is obvious: the towering monuments and famous free museums, the historic parks, and the regal testaments to America’s political prowess that overflow throughout the landscape.

It’s almost enough to make you overlook how the city turns into a summertime swamp, that average rents are ridiculous, or that traffic is so bad even people visiting from perpetually gridlocked Los Angeles are like WTF?

Almost.

But hey, it’s easy to poke fun at any city – Venice is sinking, Paris is covered in dog poop, Londoners drive on the wrong side of the road – and Party Earth isn’t about taking cheap shots.

We are, however, all over helping you find some cheap things to do in DC that can make for a great date, at prices even a Capitol Hill page could afford.

If y’all end up getting married, we want an invite.

Cheapest date I ever had in DC was back in college. We went to the Cheesesteak Factory. I really, really miss that place.

Awesome people watching at Eastern Market. I can't tell if Bourbon is good to have on this list or not - unless you know your date is into bourbon, it feels a bit risky. On the other hand, I doubt the combo of low lighting and intense alcohol has ever turned out less than favorable...
