Georgetown is a great place to spend the day. Lots of shopping, restaurants, history, etc. You don't wan to miss the Georgetown Harbor and take a Potomac River cruise at sunset where you will see all of the DC monuments lit up.

Lots of great restaurants and a wide variety of local shops in a beautiful setting. Great atmosphere in an evening - make sure you get down to the waterfront!
