$4.95 USD

This is the Georgetown chapter from Lonely Planet’s Washington DC guide-book.

You’ll want to spend at least a half-day nosing around Georgetown, and shoppers, history buffs and outdoor enthusiasts could easily do a full day. As Washington’s oldest neighborhood, the area draws plenty of tourists who come to walk its cobbled streets and admire its Federal-style architecture.

  • meander the ponds, pools and terraced formal gardens of Dumbarton Oaks, then head in-side to peruse El Greco art, pre-Columbian ceramics and the library of centuries-old books
  • maps
  • escape the concrete jungle by walking or cycling a bit of the C&O Canal Towpath, perhaps going far enough to see wooden bridges and vintage lock houses
  • transport
  • sip an alfresco drink, admiring the yachts and watching rowing teams skim the Potomac at Georgetown Waterfront Park
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
