We walked the streets of this pretty area admiring the variation of architecture and referencing some of the notables who have lived here most famous of course the Kennedys. We intended to walk along the canal but it was partially closed off undergoing major reconstruction...More

Does anybody miss Georgetown on their trip to DC. It's famous though nowadays shops have taken much of its old glamour. Best thong is to walk on the back or adjacent street; that's where Georgetowners live. I'm sure you'll envy those whose homes are on...More

Probably my favorite small town I've ever been to. Walking the cobble stone streets, shopping the great shops and eating at all the pubs and restaurants can't be matched.

This is one of the stops on the Big Bus hop-on/hop-off, so it was no big deal to hop off for a quick stroll and a hot chocolate, then continue onto the next attraction. I am glad, though, that we did not go there especially,...More

Simply lovely, vintage and historical! The town streets decorated whimsical for Christmas, easy walking and art exhibits scattered throughout! So glad we took the big bus tour out to Georgetown! Icing on the cake to our DC trip!

This was my 2nd time visiting parts of Georgetown. I love the set-up of the area and the history. The shops and cafes in the main area are fun too. Definitely recommend taking a break from the crowds and going to this area.

Close to D.C. downtown and the Mall. You have to stop into Georgetown Cupcakes. They are amazing and they have many varieties. World famous !

We have done this twice already only because there is so much to see and do. Shops, restaurants, education can all be inspiring at this location. Come with a strong pair of legs and a great appetite.

It has been a while; however, the metro stop at Key Bridge is an easy walk into the middle of Georgetown. May want to Google ‘Washington DC Metro’ to see the updated map. Hope you have fun!

Washington DC combined with Colonial Williamsburg (3 Replies)
We are planning an 8-9 day trip to Washington DC September 12th. I have a couple of questions. 1. Do you recommend also including a drive down to Colonial Williamsburg? Would one day be long enough to see the highlights if so? 2. This is our list of possible places/sites to visit. How would you group them and do you have opinions on whether or not they are worth the time? Smithsonian (not sure which sections of Smithsonian to spend most time?) Holocaust Museum National Air and Space...More

Williamsburg deserves at least two full days. It is really too far away from DC for a comfortable day trip. Don't forget that Jamestown and Yorktown are right there too.

Bath Good Mid-Coast Base? (4 Replies)
I'm looking for a base in the mid-coastal region for day trips to Popham Beach, Reid St Pk, Boothbay, Wicasset, etc...haven't looked at all possibilities yet. Have found a reasonably-priced lodging in Bath. Is Bath a good base for 3 or 4 nights? Or is it better to have a base actually located within one of the peninsulas like Boothbay Harbor, Phippsburg or Georgetown? I want a combination of beaches, museums, historic houses, and of course lobster. Thanks

Response fromTomMalley|
Not sure when your trip is but Bath/Wiscasset can be very trafficky in July and August. If you have only 3 nights I would choose a place that appeals in the area and not plan on TOO much driving. Boothbay is rocky coast/ lobster boats/ lots of dining choices but if you're looking for sandy beach time you'll want Georgetown or Phippsburg which are smaller and quieter....except for the daily influx of beachgoers.
