Welcome to Georgetown
Sitting right on the Potomac River with its cobbled stone streets, Georgetown is one of the oldest and most historic areas of Washington, D.C. Not to mention, Georgetown may also be the most visually pleasing section of D.C. It has it all – amazing restaurants, terrific shopping (nearly 500 shops!) and some of the most spectacular and expensive homes in Washington. M Street, the backbone of Georgetown is filled with life throughout the day as people walk from shop to shop and down to the waterfront. With a view of Key Bridge and the Potomac River from so many waterside restaurants, Georgetown has sightseeing opportunities everywhere you look. Over the years, Georgetown has been home to many politicians, diplomats and journalists, including John and Jackie Kennedy, Katherine Graham, Bob Woodward, John Kerry and Madeleine Albright. It is also home to Georgetown University.
One notable neighborhood of Georgetown is Foggy Bottom. Foggy Bottom is considered to be the heart of D.C., with a surplus of restaurants, shops, condominiums, and townhouses. The neighborhood is easily accessible via the Foggy Bottom Metro Station in addition to the Metro Bus and D.C. Circulator. From enjoying dance shows and other entertainment at the Kennedy Center to looking down at the spectacular waterfront view from the Watergate Hotel’s rooftop, Foggy Bottom has a true urban vibe. Nonetheless, residents can still enjoy nature by renting a canoe or kayak at the Thompson Boat Center to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Potomac River. The southernmost end of Rock Creek Park also lies within Foggy Bottom, providing the perfect place for bikers, runners, walkers, and any other outdoor enthusiasts. Popular restaurants include Rasika, a modern restaurant serving traditional Indian food, and Burger Tap & Shake, a casual restaurant serving variations of the classic burger along with fries and shakes. Founding Farmers is another local favorite, serving American cuisine and providing a rustic atmosphere. Foggy Bottom is home to young professionals, retired couples, and growing families, combining unique backgrounds with various cultures.
