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!

The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal is nicely preserved and the buildings throughout Georgetown create a very nice atmosphere for a weekend (or just an evening) away / out. It has a very nice ambiance and I love the bars / pubs and Mom & Pop shops. Speaking of shops, the Shops at Georgetown Park mall is a neat place to... More

When you live in LA you may come out in movies all the time. Many movies are now filmed in other locations and Georgetown looks like in the movies. When I first came I was in a hurry so I didn't really spend much time there. Now I try to stop and take some time to walk around and enjoy... More

Georgetown is such a beautiful area and a great place to walk and shop. Very easy to get to via the metro system and so much to see and enjoy. Loved the waterfront area but also enjoyed the shops and the canals. We spent several hours walking around and looking at the buildings and the canal, etc...we also feel the... More

Georgetown is one of the nicest parts of the city. It is lined with shops, restaurants, pubs, and there's even museums and embassies tucked in where you least expect it. It was really enjoyable to walk around and we would gladly visit again.

This is a great place to stay. It only costs a dollar to ride to most of the museums and places in DC. It's a great place to walk and will continue to stay and shop in Georgetown every time we visit DC.

From the 70s era of The Exorcist film to urban pre-madonna fashion-ghetto of wannabe in-trend. My friend Victoria Jones still lives in the area. Many shops like Urban Outfitter keeps G-Town one of the best in D.C.

Compared to oldtown Alexandria, Georgetown is much higher energy. Georgetown is in DC and you can tell. A great place to walk and explore, plenty of places to eat, drink & photograph. Lots of tourist stuff to avoid, lots of cool stuff yo enjoy!
