Its a great place to walk around, cobblestone streets, interesting (small) houses. Make it a point to walk around the University. Lots of bars and restaurants.

After several disappointing restaurant outings during our trip to Washington in December, my husband and I found Paolo's the night before we left Washington. Too bad we didn't find it earlier because we enjoyed this one a lot. It is located in Georgetown and is fairly large, with tables enough apart to allow for private conversation. We shared a house...

We stayed not too far away in Dupont circle. One of my highlights of the stay were the two times we cycled up to Georgetown. Beautiful relaxed setting on the outskirts. Highlight was dining in the iconic Martin's Tavern where JFK proposed to Jackie Kennedy and every president since Truman has dined at some point. Loads of history.

Georgetown is many things. Iy is a place for a quiet walk along the C&O Canal, feed the ducks, learn about the locks. Or you can shop in some of DC's most exclusive shops. After the sun goes down, the bars light up and the bands play.

It was New Year's Day and we caught a cab to the AMC Theater to watch a movie. Afterwards, we decided to walk through Georgetown to find a place to eat. We love the small-town feel of the area and all the shops and restaurants. Also, love the views of the Potomac including the Georgetown Glow. Georgetown is quaint, historic... More

This place is located at the centre of M street and Wisconsin Avenue NW. it's D.C's oldest neighborhood where high-end and luxurious boutiques coexist with brick row houses, bars and restaurants.

Walks around Georgetown will yield many sites:museums, historic houses, great food, beautiful flowers and plants and history, history, history. We stayed at the Mansion on O Street and walked at our leisure around GT. It's best to plan your walks in advance. There are walking tours available online.
