Georgetown (Washington, D.C.)


One of my favorite places to visit in the Fall is Georgetown right on the outskirts of Washington DC.  There is tons of shopping, historic sites, restaurants and feels like your in London!

Where to Go

Washington D.C. is 5 minutes away from Georgetown where you can take tours of the white house or simply view all of the national monuments.  At night this city is lit up in the most magnificent way.  The John F. Kennedy Center is also the home of an array of preforming arts including; The Washington National Opera and The Washington Ballet.  There is also a rapid metro-rail and bus system in the area so it is very convenient to get around!

If you are visiting Georgetown around Christmas time there are many different extraordinary productions of the Nutcracker and will put you right in the mood for the Holidays!

Other Places to View

The Exorcist Steps

A Few different movies have been filmed in the city including the 1973 horror film The Exorcist.  In one of the most thrilling scenes the main character of the movie is pushed down this exact staircase which is said to be haunted.

Where to Eat


One of the town favorites is Clyde's which was opened in 1963.  Its an all American place that is famous for burgers but also try one of Maryland's signature crab cakes.  There are so many other delicious options that you will want to come back for Brunch

Where to Stay

The Graham Georgetown

Modern with an vintage-french twist The Graham is one of the finest places to stay in Georgetown.  It is located right off the popular shopping street (M- Street) and has an awesome rooftop with views of downtown and Washington D.C.  Its rooms are also a lot more affordable than other options in the area.
