Was amazed by the architecture and feel of the town. It was cute and Charming. They also have a lot of upscale shops and boutique stores. Also a lot of good restaurant. Worth the visit when looking for something to do. Georgetown Cupcakes is a must when around the area!!! Hands down the best cupcakes i've had!!

Pretty much whatever you're looking for you'll find it here! Great shopping, food, nightlife, people watching etc. There are tons of name brand stores, and some unique ones too. There is a mall with even more shopping as well. If you love vintage Annie Creamcheese is my favorite place to go, I always find something that is a "must have!" Right on M street there are some fun bars, Third Edition is always packed. Down by the water there are two bars with umbrellas that are a lot of fun when the weather is nice and always packed. These same to bars have a great lunch menu ( I work right by them) If you have a boat you can pull it right up to the boardwalk/sidewalk and hang out at the bars too.

With its trendy shops and countless cafe's, resturants, and bars, Georgetown is a terrific place to spend the early evening. There's plenty of nightlife as well, but we've found that the happy hour timeframe is Georgetown's sweet spot. There is no Metro Station in Georgetown (deliberate choice by the natives) and parking is a pain, but once you''re there good times await. Obey the parking restrictions or be prepared to have your car towed across town (very painful and expensive experience).

The du Pont circle is always busy. Its best to go when its not rush hour because you will sit in traffic forever. Sunday seems to be the best day to go and make sure to pass by Georgetown Cupcakes.

I have a few favorite neighborhoods in the world...Gramercy Park in New York, the 7th Arrondissement in Paris and two neighborhoods in D.C...DuPont Circle/Embassy Row and Georgetown. Georgetown has all the prerequisites for me: splendid architecture, great wallking and plenty of fine shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. Transportation is convenient and the neighborhood is safe, in a city that has increasingly shed its former existence as a center of violent crime. If I could afford to live there, I just might.
