Stayed in central DC on vacation from the uk, and our hotel staff suggested we visit Georgetown which was only 10 mins from our hotel. What a beautiful place ! Great architecture, good shops and bars and cafes and the wonderful harbour area. Relaxed atmosphere. Such a contrast from the concrete jungle 10 minutes away. Highly recommended

Georgetown has so much to offer. At night its a party, during the day you can see the original canals, and wandiner historic streets and shop with a huge amount of choice and prices.. There are also historic houses and gardens- easily a day or for repeat visits.

I stayed here at my friend's house and was just 4 blocks off M Street. Took a historic walking tour, saw all the Kennedy homes and more! Ate at The Tavern, went to Georgetown U...so much to see and do! Can walk around town or hitch a bus ride here and there (I did both.) Lots of old, beautiful homes... More

Yes, it will give you a glimpse of large cities in Europe, with small shops and small bars/restaurants. Lots of youth and noisy groups especially in the evenings. In the weekends this is a very crowded place full of life and music. Still - big difference - as this is NOT a dirty and smelly place like sometimes you find... More

Walked here from the Jefferson Memorial and it was a nice walk. Lots of shopping and places to eat but it can get very busy. The signage on the stores sort of blends in which is something I noticed, kind of nice.

The hip place to be with quality food, drinks, and shops. The area is getting a bit to overcrowded, and filled with hipsters, but always worth a trip. The area could use a good street cleaning to spruce it up a bit.

My grand daughter and I stayed here while we visited DC. We loved it. Many fine paces to eat and see. Very quaint with much history. It takes you into another time period and a wonderful experience.

Everytime I am in D.C. this is a must! The vibe is amazing! With a pair of comfy shoes you can explore this beautiful town with its cobblestone streets and old world architecture. Reminds me of a quaint seaside town in Europe! Lots of shopping and restaurants. The traffic is horrible but there are transportation options. I have walked from... More

Georgetown is a must! Although is not easily accessible via Metro is worth the trip if you want to do some shopping and grab a bite. It is always full - so try to make reservations! Walk the main street for flagship stores - but explore around for some local flavor and boutiques! Grab a burger at the tombs :)
