Pristine, elegant, delicious, the shopping won't disappoint, the dining is sure to satisfy, and the smooth cobblestone streets will transport you in time.
Dating back to 1751, the neighborhood of Georgetown in northwest DC is one of the oldest in the area and is home to some of the most splendid and preserved architecture in the district.
Single family stone homes from the late 1700's share the streets with colonial row homes. From gas lamps to louvered shutters no detail is spared.
Easily accessible via the DC Metro, Georgetown is a pedestrian neighborhood. If you're driving, note that DC has neighborhood specific designated parking areas, which means parking can be tricky if you don't live in the neighborhood you're trying to park in. Read signs carefully!
