1. Dumbarton Oaks Park

Do you love walking through Georgetown but feel that the waterfront or M street are too crowded? Then the Dumbarton Oaks Park might be a more intimate location that is still technically located in Georgetown. This park is a public park that can be accessed via Lovers' Lane from R street - and if that doesn't spell romance we don't know what does!
