So its not just the University which is worth a visit, but the streets are full of shops and great restaurants and you can walk down to the waterfront or visit the canals.

Walked around here one afternoon having read about the historic old buildings. might have been better before all the normal shops took over the main streets in the area. Not that impressed to be honest. Highlight was getting a nice lunch in a waterfront restaurant

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I spent 5 wonderful days in DC, and our son suggested we stay in Georgetown. A great choice! It's interesting, compact, has lots of desirable shopping and eating choices, and isn't too far from the Washington sights....More

An easy walk, lots of fun shops, with highlights of Christ Church, where George Washington attended and from which he was buried and the waterfront with the Torpedo Factory gallery where you can watch over 90 artists at work.

It's changed a lot over the 40+ years I've been visiting, but still fabulous. Lots of choices to eat, drink and shop. Charming, but updated. Don't miss it.

Best hotel close to the Memorial Day Parade? The Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill or across the street, a bit smaller and more charming, The Liaison Capitol Hill. On New Jersey Ave., two blocks from the Mall.
