We went to Jewelers Werk and Relish and Leopolds, walked along the canal, went to a bakery below M street on Wisconsin Ave and walked around the area. There is plenty to do and see.

Historic Georgetown is very cute with expensive trendy shops on the main drag and more modest options as you move away. Dean and Duluca offer healthy upscale food at a reasonable price. The Circulator bus solves the fact that this area isn't on a metro line. Take the bus to the metro stop that works best for you.

This was one of the stops on the Trolley Tour green line. We decided to stop off here to do a little shopping and grab lunch. There is a canal that runs through town that has a little beaten path next to it if you want to walk along the canal. It runs behind the buildings and does not have... More

Actually this was my second visit to Georgetown in the past few years. Its is a bit remote as accessed by Metro rail, but we did take the train to DuPont Circle, and walked the mile over on P Street - amongst the nice brownstones. The lesser expensive shops are up hill from the main tourist drag, which has plenty... More

This is not as much of a review of Georgetown as it is of Stray Boots... I have the Stray Boots app on my phone and have done one in my home region of Chicago. It takes you to places you would not otherwise find, and the Georgetown tour was no different. To be honest, we (my 11 and 13... More

Went here expecting it to be wonderfully quaint and pretty, but it just didn't come up to expectations. Shops are nothing special, and many of the eateries looked pretty grim, though some did look much better. All in all, we would not have bothered, but would have spent more time in the main DC museums

This is a fun place to be and great place to hangout. The Exorcist stairs are located in Georgetown. Best restaurants are located here. Some of the best shopping is here too. Plenty of activities and sights to see.
