Welcome to Georgetown

Village-like D.C. neighborhood with beautiful historic homes

Georgetown is a village-like D.C. neighborhood with historic buildings lining charming cobblestone streets. Georgetown has vibrant commercial areas among tree-lined residential streets while the Potomac riverfront features outstanding restaurants and picturesque views. Housing options here include beautiful examples of Federal, Georgian, and Victorian architecture. The neighborhood also features newer developments of single-family homes, townhouses, and condominiums.

Georgetown is packed with premier shopping and dining options. Café Milano is a sophisticated Italian eatery with a stylish interior and a sidewalk patio. This classic upscale dining destination is popular among celebrities and the D.C. political elite. La Chaumiere serves chef-driven cuisine in a rustic setting modeled after a French country inn. Fiola Mare is one of several fine restaurants along the Potomac waterfront. Specializing in Italian-style seafood dishes, its glittering list of diners has included Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Georgetown is hugely popular with tourists for its cultural landmarks and elegant architecture. The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal is a great spot to explore on foot or by boat. Commonly known as the C&O Canal, this scenic waterway served as a major industrial hub from 1830 until 1920. 

Dumbarton Oaks is an exquisite 19th-century estate containing a museum with a large collection of Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, and European art. Built in 1766, Georgetown’s Old Stone House is the oldest structure in D.C. still standing on its original foundation. Built in 1815, Tudor Place was originally owned by a granddaughter of Martha Washington and step-granddaughter of George Washington. The Federal-style mansion at Tudor Place sits on 5.5 acres of beautifully-landscaped grounds and features a large collection of decorative items and historic artifacts once owned by the Washington family. Dumbarton House is another 1800s property housing a museum with over 1,000 items dating back to the Federal period. 

The Federal-style manor at Evermay is surrounded by 3.5 acres of terraced gardens, sprawling lawns, and fountains. Evermay hosts annual events such as the Ryuji Ueno Foundation’s concerts series in the spring and fall. 

Georgetown Waterfront Park offers a relaxing green space on the banks of the Potomac with views of Key Bridge and Theodore Roosevelt Island. The park surrounds a centerpiece fountain you can splash around in during the summer and features a labyrinth, rain and pollinator gardens, and steps leading down to the river.

Georgetown is served by the District of Columbia Public Schools District. Prestigious local educational institutions include Georgetown University, a world-class private research university founded in 1789.
