This is near Georgetown University. You can map it on google. It's funny to do lots of picture poses as you can see on google images. It's also good for cardio if you wanna kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

You have to be familiar with the Exorcist movie to appreciate this. It's not hard to find, but it doesn't stand out either. You have to know what you are looking for.

Depending on what time you visit, you might be met with stair runners trying to get their workouts in. (Saw a weighted vest runner Sunday afternoon). Made getting people free pics a bit more challenging. Would recommend visiting a dusk for ultimate spook factor.

The EXORICIST has been my favorite movie FOREVER! I went to visit DC, and remembered the movie (and stairs) were located around in Georgetown. The address is 3600 Prospect, however, that is actually an address for a house situated on a corner lot. When looking...More

Okay these are of course just stairs linking Georgetown University to the bridge going to Rosslyn, Virginia but if you've seen The Exorcist movie, stopping by here is a little more interesting. We visited at night while hunting for a geocache and it was a...More

On our recent trip to DC we tried to include some "off the beaten path" sites in our itinerary. These steps have been preserved & are in good condition for a climb. The city has included a plaque at the base of them. A great...More
