Georgetown

At first glance, Washington's oldest and wealthiest neighborhood may look genteel and staid, but don't be fooled: this is a lively part of town. By day, Georgetown is D.C.'s top shopping destination, with everything from eclectic antiques and housewares to shoes and upscale jeans. By night, revelers along M Street and Wisconsin Avenue eat, drink, and make merry. This neighborhood was made for strolling with its historic tree-lined streets and views of the Potomac from waterfront parks. Although the coveted brick homes north of M Street are the province of Washington's high society, the rest of the neighborhood offers ample entertainment for everyone.
