If you come to DC, you must go to Georgetown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington DC.

Founded in 1751, the city of Georgetown was  a major port and commercial center during colonial times because of its prime location along the Potomac River waterfront. Today, Georgetown is a vibrant community with high-end shops, bars, and restaurants.

How to go to Georgetown?

There is no Metro station in Georgetown, the closet metro stations will be Foggy Bottom-GWU, and Dupont Circle.  You can also ride the DC circulator  bus.

Georgetown Sightseeing:

- Canal Square Building, 1054 31st Street, NW, former home of the Tabulating Machine Company

- The Old Stone House, built in 1765, located on M Street is the oldest house in Washington, DC

- Tudor Place and Dumbarton Court

- The Oak Hill Cemetery, a gift of William Wilson Corcoran whose Gothic chapel was designed by James Renwick, is the resting place of Abraham Lincoln’s son Willie

- Healy Hall on Georgetown’s campus, built in Romanesque style
