Washington DC: Downtown vs.Georgetown

Jump to last reply

I am visiting Washington DC for 4 nights in early June, debating whether to stay in
Georgetown or downtown. I am driving into Wash DC, stopping en route to NC. I have visited DC before, always staying downtown, but last visited in 1991. I plan to visit major sights I never saw before like the Holocaust Museum, Library of Congress, and revisit a couple of sights at the Smithsonian and National Gallery. I don't shop, or stay out late past 10, but I do enjoy walking and street life.

I s there any street life downtown? I remember that downtown was really convenient to the Mall and sights, but I don't remember any street life or night activity. I also seem to remember that Georgetown is not convenient to the Metro or the big sights.
