Nice Shopping, Best for Older KidsFlag review
Just over the Key Bridge, Georgetown is a beautiful section of DC with lots of stores, restaurants and of course, Georgetown University. You’ll also find loads of lovely row homes just a couple of blocks off the main strip of Georgetown. Walk around Georgetown University, check out the “Exorcist Steps” and visit Georgetown Cupcake (be prepared to stand in line) of TLC’s “DC Cupcakes” series. If you like shopping, you’ll also find Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Juicy Couture stores.
Tips for Families
The sidewalks are narrow and bumpy, making it challenging to navigate with a stroller. Also, there is no Metro in Georgetown and the closest Metro stops are at least 15 minutes away on foot.
