“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Georgetown has a stately, old-money air with elegant row houses, historic home museums, gardens, and the landscaped Georgetown University campus. Georgetown is bursting with boutiques for food, fashion, decor, and art, with the best-curated selections atop Book Hill on upper Wisconsin Avenue. Rent a kayak at a riverside boat center for a paddle on the Potomac, or take a bike ride along the C&O Canal. Blues Alley has hosted talents from Dizzy Gillespie to Tony Bennett, and still features live jazz every night. Georgetown sits west of Rock Creek Parkway from the Potomac to the Naval Observatory, and is accessible by the DC Circulator bus.
