There’s beauty at every corner in Georgetown, and many describe this neighborhood as the perfect intersection of historic charm and upscale modernity. Starting with the imposing Georgetown University that sits right on the Potomac, you can meander down quaint cobblestone streets, admiring old mansions nestled right next to brand new complexes. The picturesque neighborhood has tons of retail shops, some of the city’s best and most notable art galleries, and locally owned bistros.
