We walked to Georgetown from china town... lovely walk... Georgetown was a lovely old area with gorgeous period houses and shops. The canal is undergoing a big restoration project so it's empty at present. Got the circulator bus back which was cheap and easy.

Although there are less small shops now than there used to be, Georgetown on M Street and Wisconsin is worth a day. Several good restaurants to stop at as well. Walk from Foggy Bottom or take a bus. Also, street parking if you are lucky.

M Street and Wisconsin Avenue are two nice intersecting streets with lots of shops and restaurants. Riverfront view is also beautiful.

Sure Georgetown has some of the trendier stores (H&M, Urban Outfitters) but its quaint highstreet and inclined side streets make it such a pleasure just to take in. Lots of cafes, pubs, and restaurants. It's also near the water and its all accessible. Worth a...More

There are shops and restaurants along the canal, all worth a visit. Look at the connection between Georgetown and the Potomac, i.e., the canal. Cruising Georgetown is a big tourist attraction, but way over-rated. Tourist restaurants that don't care if you ever come back (you...More

This historic neighbourhood was a highlight of our recent trip to DC. It’s easily accessible via public transport, and then a really lovely walk up and down the streets for plenty of shopping, eating and drinking! And of course you have to try a Georgetown...More

The main intersection is Wisconsin Ave and M Street. Wisconsin has mostly shops, M St has mostly restaurants, but both are fun to walk along, albeit busy. The canal is about two blocks downhill from M St running parallel... More
