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.
