Spent a day here visiting the shops and having a bite to eat at Filamina's. Georgetown is a bustling part of town that offers many things to do

Waterfront area nice to stroll, recommended at sunset. Area really busy on Saturday evenings. Neat older structures, interesting refurbishment to modern purposes. Cool transformation of old structure to theater. Too commercial for me, but interesting to walk through.

This is a safe area to run and experience the beauty of the area, take in the river and wide cobble stone stretches for walking or running. Trees and scenery were beautiful!

We didn't have a car and used the metro which was easy to use and Lyft. Traffic was terrible. I wouldn't drive. I don't recall seeing parking so not even sure that situation. But Georgetown was cool. We walked around and... More

Yes... you might need to be aware of the drunks and homeless but plenty of police presence. You should look into Uber or lyfte if it gets to late.
