A nice suburb of this busy but nevertheless quaint country town. On the one hand you have the hustle and bustle of government and on the other hand you have areas like this, where time has not stood still, but where you still find origianl buildings and streets. Lovely restaurants and places to "chill out". You should come here.

Fantastic place to shop and eat, check out the famous steps from the first Exorcist movie, quite impressive, and long walk up. Georgetown is such a great place to go check out so much to do and see right off the Potomac.

Georgetown is so pretty - we followed a walk as highlighted in our guide book - but it got too hot for us to finish it!! The houses are gorgeous, we walked around a lovely park and then down to the water and shopping area. The pier, water and canal are all really interesting areas to review - a wonderful... More

Georgetown..... Beautiful but how authentic is it? Yes it f is beutifully laid out, pretty stores, very clean. But it is somewhat artificial and sanitary, and the rich kids filing the bars don't help. Definitely worth a visit to see how pretty it is, but If you are on a budget, be careful. Shops, bars, restaurants expensive. Easyto get to... More

We were really looking forward to checking out Georgetown. We were expecting lots of unique boutiques and shops. When we got there we were kind of disappointed. It seemed to have a lot of chain stores more geared to the university crowd. We did check out the cupcake shop on the TLC show which was kind of neat but other... More

See the shops. Visit the canal and take the canal trip if you have time. Many good places to eat or drink. Visit Georgetown U campus. Visit the waterfront. A great place to walk. Not a great place to drive.

Just so quaint and beautiful! Enjoy a quiet walk around the side streets and enjoy the amazing architecture. The main street is really busy and noisy, but if you just walk two minutes away, it's like a totally different world!
