Lots of shopping, and things to see in this neighborhood bordering the university. Don't overlook the waterfront park, the canal walk and a walk over the key bridge for wonderful views.

This was a surprise. We were just driving around just for fun and ran across Georgetown. We ate by the river and watch rowing teams from the college out on the water. What a nice day.

Georgetown has great architecture, nice parks, upscale stores and so many restaurants of all types you could eat at a different one for a month and never have to repeat! Make sure to stop by Dean & Dulcie Market, what a treat! Upscale food laid out in a great building. We shared a sandwich for lunch that was so delicious... More

Do not leave Washington without a wonder through the streets of Georgetown. There are quaint shops, bars and restaurants. The harbour is stunning and has been very well renovated. I could live there in a shot!!

Nice town to walk around and window shop. Many restaurants, pubs and bakeries to try. Parking is a challenge on the weekends but during the week it's not an issue.

This is a great place to shop, walk around and eat. Very fashionable shopping area. Parking of course is a hassle. Several great restaurants right by the canal, including seafood. Georgetown cupcakes is awesome, crowded and fun. Visited the Apple Store amongst several others.

Great shopping!! From your favorite stores like Anthropolgie and Restoration Hardware to unique boutiques and design studios there is something for everyone. Great place to stroll. Also don't forget to stop by the popular Georgetown Cupcakes. They are delicious!! You can't miss it there is usually a long line out the door!
