Spend the afternoon in another one of D.C’s most historic and culture-filled neighborhoods, the iconic Georgetown. This commercial, entertainment, and residential district all in one are located in Northwest Washington DC, right along the Potomac River. Along its streets, you will find historic charm and upscale modernity, the C&O Canal, and cobblestone-street-charm greeting you all along the way. Here, the place ‘where Michigan Street meets Wisconsin Avenue’, you will find some of the hottest retail spots, most peaceful tree-lined neighborhoods, and most talked-about cuisine and entertainment around D.C.
Start your visit with a stroll down Wisconsin Avenue to see several 18th and 19th-century mansions, a few that even include one-time stay spots for celebrities such as JFK and Julia Child. Intermixed with all of these gorgeous historic homes you will find several eateries, from hole-in-the-wall hotspots to world-class restaurants with lines around the corner. Some of the more popular eating choices include all the waterfront bars, Georgetown Cupcakes, and the completely unique Crumbs and Whiskers Cat Cafe, a feline-friendly coffee shop unlike any other.
Get in all the retail therapy you can before you go, with such hot stores as H&M, Billy Reid, and Rag and Bone, plus many more upscale home design stores and fine art galleries. If you have more time, take in any local live Jazz show you can find, another great cultural immersion experience, or head over to the highly popular Pinstripes Bowling alley and let loose on the lanes!
