Georgetown combines a long history with many historic homes and offices with restaurants, hotels, and places just to sit for a drink. It is a vibrant location and best to walk by foot.

Beautiful little town with a heap of interesting history/landmarks. We did a 2 hour tour here which just scratched the surface of what is in Georgetown. Wished we had more time here.

Shopping, bookstores (although less than earlier times) and if you are a foodie great places to eat. VERY DIFFICULT to find parking, so you might want to taxi or Uber it. If you allow time, check out Georgetown University.

This pleasant and quaint area of Washington has become extremely commercial and the epitome of gentrification. Nonetheless it's very pleasant, good for shopping, and has great restaurants. The restaurants near the Potomac are especially Pleasant on a nice summer day.

Yes... you might need to be aware of the drunks and homeless but plenty of police presence. You should look into Uber or lyfte if it gets to late.

The main intersection is Wisconsin Ave and M Street. Wisconsin has mostly shops, M St has mostly restaurants, but both are fun to walk along, albeit busy. The canal is about two blocks downhill from M St running parallel... More
