Steeped in history, Georgetown boasts brick-lined streets, classic colonial architecture, and some of the best shopping in the District. Stroll the promenade - whether you seek fashion at Barney's Co-op, antiques at Côté Jardin, or merely love to people watch, Georgetown is pure charm. For a reprieve from the hum of M Street, wind your way North to admire perfectly manicured town homes, or visit a bygone era with historic Dumbarton Oak's art collection and museum. Explore Cady's Alley for a latte overlooking the C&O canal, but don't forget to sample a cupcake or two - Georgetown is famous for its sweet treats, and good luck choosing a favorite flavor. Summer is the perfect time to sip a drink on the waterfront, where locals and visitors alike come to see and be seen.
