Headed here as it has a real community/ history feel as opposed to lots of big grand memorials and status. Here for Sunday morning onwards, some nice shops ( mainly big name stores and a vintage shop or two) but quite relaxed. Bit of history to see, canal, small quaint houses, relaxed atmosphere, well worth the Uber cab fair over....

I enjoyed the architectural designs of the buildings. My camera took many photos that day when visiting.

Very beautiful colorful streets. Not for shopping as all is very expensive. The harbor is a god place for a water taxi or canoeing.

The crab legs were very fresh and really good. We ordered them with garlic butter and medium spice and they were amazing. We also ordered a pound of the crawfish with hot spices and they were a bit too hot for me, but my husband loved them. This is definitely one of my new favorite places to eat in Georgetown.

Take the time to walk down Wisconsin to the waterfront. Some really nice restaurants there. Highly recommend Fishers Farmers Bakers! Also stroll along the... More
