It is quiet and surrounded by bunches of good dinner places and attractions. The Georgetown University is also there that you can take a time to interact with one of the best student groups in the country.

I love this quaint town where there is great shopping, places to eat and historical charm. All the best stores in this area and my teenagers enjoyed themselves!

We went on a ghost tour that walked us through Georgetown that was really nice. M street had tons of places to eat and shop. However, finding a restaurant that could accommodate a stroller was difficult and finding a changing table near impossible, ended up using the stroller yo change my baby.

If you're in DC for a few days and want to experience a little something different, I highly recommend Adam's Morgan neighborhood or Georgetown. Both are unique, but Georgetown is a little more upscale with their shops and things. Adam's Morgan is more local, hipster. They are both great. Very historical and great for a stroll. Stop for a glass... More

I liked Georgetown; quieter than Downtown, and the architecture is great; a real hot-spot for photographers!

Really enjoyed the historical aspect strolling up and down the main street. Lots of great shopping, lots of yummy food choices (we enjoyed a Vietnamese lunch) and the Old Stone House was a very interesting view into the early residents' lives. This area is a nice contrast from DC

Incredible place. You will feel like in a fairy tale story! Every front of every house or store is beautiful! It shows you the old part of Washington DC. I recommend to go by sunset to see Georgetown at day and night. I definitely love it!

Short drive from the 'monuments' area of D.C. Parking is at a premium on weekends but a great place to shop and eat. Interesting, unique shops and huge variety of restaurants.
