If you visit Georgetown, avaoid the crowds. Stay away from M Street shops and the waterfront. Head up hill to where the old houses are and walk the streets. Head all the way up to R street and hit the cemetery and gardens. Georgetown is not about Starbucks and chain stores, its a neighborhood...so, go meet some locals tending their gardens.

We travel from DC to Georgetown with the Circulator ($1.00). I would define it as an interesting neighborhood.
Besides shopping, the historic houses and sites, the river and his boardwalk covered our expectations and if you are a foodie for sure will find a lot to do. Dean and Deluca its one of them!

Experience the old and new. Such a beautiful area if you enjoy walking. Take your time and take in the sights from the historical to the retail.

We were staying down the road from Georgetown and took a stroll late one afternoon. It’s got a rea village feel about it with a mixture of quirky shops and some more high end chain shops as well as pubs, restaurants etc. Lovely vibe, worth a visit.
