The streets of this historic town are beautiful. You can just walk and enjoy the architecture or stop at the different local coffee shops and restaurants and enjoy some art galleries.

Nice visit
Aug 2021
I walked around Georgetown in August 2021 on a hot and humid day. I walked from 20th and E (Foggy Bottom / George Washington University) to Georgetown (M and 32nd). I had not been to Georgetown in a long time. It is still full of restaurants and stores and quite crowded, even on a weekday. My favorite restaurant Filomena's is still there although it was too crowded to eat there. I also looked quickly at the canal but did not walk down to the harbor. The challenge with Georgetown is getting there. My walk to Georgetown was 2 miles and took 40 minutes. I walked around Georgetown for around two hours and then took the Circulator bus to 20th and M. In the past we had always driven to Georgetown and parked at Wisconsin and M.

Safe neighborhood
Aug 2021
seems quite safe to walk on every street in this trendy neighborhood. Many restaurants to choose from and less stores but almost all of them are interesting.

I came to DC for a cultural trip with my family and the town is quiet at night. We went into Georgetown for dinner and we were not disappointed. The town is vibrant, and cute and a location you must visit.

Love Georgetown! But don’t love new Trip advisor format = not user friendly
Aug 2021 • Family
Georgetown is beautiful! Walked the neighborhood and enjoyed the architecture as well as the restaurants and the park on the Potomac River. It can be expensive but that is to be expected. And a special note to Trip Advisor; your new format sucks and your site has become non-user friendly. If I am the only one experiencing this then so be it but imagine I am not alone with this sentiment. Please
Change your format and make it user friendly.
