Great Dates for Your Bae This Valentine’s Day

February 13, 2018

These are the best spots near your ROSS student apartment that won’t break the bank!

For the Athletic Bae

What’s cuter than ice skating hand-in-hand with your favorite person? This plaza in Downtown Silver Spring is the perfect place to have your own rom-com moment.

And for just $9 admissions and $5 skate rental, it’s totally affordable!

Bundle up tight and start the night with a romantic stroll from your student apartment at Cole Spring Plaza, Metro 710 or Colesville Towers (all just minutes away from the rink). Later, you can finish off the evening with any of these amazing restaurants in Downtown Silver Spring.

 

For the Intellectual Bae

Washington, DC, has some of the best museums in the country, so it’s no surprise that there are new, exciting exhibitions opening up every week. This Valentine’s Day, you can take your bae to the Hirshhorn for a closer look at the fine line between art and commerce during the 1980’s. For a more contemporary topic, check out this interactive exhibit examining the Women’s March at The Phillips Collection. Admission is just $10 for students and it’s conveniently located on the same Metro line as ROSS’ Pleasant Hills student apartments.

Lastly, if you and bae are looking for a mental appetizer, consider attending this one-time event at the Hirshhorn before you head to your dinner reservation. As a part of the Smithsonian Institute, the Hirshhorn has free admission.

 

For the Fashionable Bae

Alexandria is famous for its boutique shopping, especially along King Street. Just 10-minutes north of The Heritage at Old Town and 10 minutes south of Park Vue, it’s the ideal destination if you and your partner just love shopping! (Or they love shopping and you love them.) Check out this comprehensive guide and you can plan your route ahead of time. Although these shops aren’t known for being affordable, luckily window-shopping is free! There’s nothing a college girl loves more than making puppy faces at her partner and asking for something totally unreasonable. Make her a deal and get her a box from Blüprint Chocolatiers instead. She’ll come back to your student apartment beaming.

Whether you’re living in Silver Spring, Washington, DC, or Alexandria, you can find the perfect ROSS student apartment for your lifestyle. We understand that students are always balancing wants and needs against a budget. Take a tour today and see how we can make the ROSS life work for you.
