A trip to DC would not be complete without at least an afternoon exploring & dining in the Georgetown area. Walk M Street and Wisconsin Avenue to take in the shops and restaurants.

Get on the loop bus and get off at Georgetown, it really is worth a look. Walk down to the river and get a great meal and drink.

This is a very pricey area to visit. There is a lot of traffic on narrow roads. There is a beautiful park, however, that is full of people running about in any weather.

The local, quirky shops are gradually being replaced by national chains...so the character of Georgetown is changing. That said, it's still a nice place for a Sunday walk along the canal, with visits to local shops and then a visit to the water front. The crowds can be crazy when the weather is nice, and good luck parking - try... More

Loved the architecture and atmosphere of this area. Lots of shopping opportunities and loads of places for coffee. Great historical/topical stories to be learnt.

Six trips here, in the past few years, and I need to do six more to claim any expertise. The cute houses are worth a see, as is the canal, the strip and the local coffeeshops.

Georgetown is a nice, expensive area that is not very accessible, via car or Metro. In fact, there are no Metro stops in Georgetown, by design. We took our car and got stuck in crazy traffic that just stood still. People cut in on our car and it felt insane. Yes, it was a Friday night but REALLY?! I don't... More

Love coming here. It had been several years since my last visit and was anxious to hit the restaurants, hotel, and shopping. Lot of the stores from yesteryear were gone but that's the nature of they beast. Good grief. Construction everywhere and snow piled high on the sidewalks made for a treacherous day, but it was fun to walk the... More

Georgetown is in my opinion a nicer place to stay than Washington.. perhaps not as interesting, but the little bars and eating places make up for it. In terms of architecture I think its far superior to Washington OTHER THAN the monuments of course. If I had my visit to plan again, I'd stay in Georgetown and travel to DC.
