Things to Do in Georgetown

View Map

Historic Georgetown abuts the scenic Potomac River with a busy, thriving community filled with local and national chain stores, bars, restaurants, and renowned music venues, such as the Cellar Door.

Upscale shops, restaurants and galleries line the Wisconsin and M Street corridor. Georgetown Park is an enclosed shopping mall closer to the river.

The community also houses Georgetown University, a number of international embassies, and historic structures such as the Canal Square Building and the City Tavern Club. Built in 1765,
The Old Stone House, is the oldest original structure in the Washington, D.C. area. Many buildings in this densely urban enclave are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Another well known site: the steep, stone seventy-five so-called “Exorcist steps” named for the 1973 horror classic The Exorcist which was partially filmed here.
