The Best Places to Propose in Washington D.C.

Now that you’ve found the perfect partner and you’re ready to take the first step toward forever, you’ve probably realized that the proposal is very important. A marriage proposal is one of the most memorable moments in a person’s life and is the ultimate demonstration of true love. As you plan your proposal, you should consider all of the factors that will combine to make it a magical experience for your future spouse. Think about what you will say, how you will time it, and where it will happen.

As you consider your location options, don’t forget to think about your partner’s personality. If your future spouse is a nature-lover, many of the most beautiful places in D.C. are overflowing with the beauty of nature. Or perhaps the one you love has a favorite memorial that happens to be one of the most romantic places in Washington. Keep them in mind as you make your plans, because your ultimate goal should be to make his or her proposal dreams come true.

Here is a short list of the top places to propose in the Washington, D.C. area to help you begin planning your big moment.

Rock Creek Park
