We scoured the D.C. dating scene and found five of the most entertaining and fun date spots that you and your honey will love.There's so much pressure placed on dating and romance. With the dinner dates and the fancy outfits, it can become tedious just getting ready for a meal that ends up being way more expensive than you'd originally thought. Now don't get me wrong -- I love the romance as much as any other girl, but sometimes I'd much rather have fun and go out and do something different! Which is why we have put together a list of five fun, entertaining and truly unique date spots for you and your sweetheart.
Trolley Pub ArlingtonThe Trolley Pub is a pedal-powered, eco-friendly, pub-crawling trolley that can sit up to 14 people at a time. There are two tours offered: Private Tour and Mixer Tour. The Private Tour is the most popular option, with groups of eight to 14 booking the entire trolley for a two-hour tour. You can either go on a pub-crawl and visit your favorite watering holes, or you can simply cruise along and enjoy the sightseeing around town. The only difference between the two tours is that the Mixer Tour (which only seats up to eight people) isn't private so you'll be making some new friends along the way.

Gravelly PointAcross from the Potomac River is Gravelly Point park. Here, you'll find many folks lying on their backs watching the airplanes take off and land at Reagan National Airport. It's the perfect place to talk, relax, and get to know one another. Well, talk as much as you can before there's a loud plane roaring above you! There are also areas around the park where you can have a picnic lunch. [gallery columns="2" size="large" ids="2332,2331"] For more information about Gravelly Point park, please click here.
