The area from 27th to 37th Streets, between Rock Creek Park and K Street NW, is the city's most seasoned, with sources in the mid 1700s, preceding Washington itself. Georgetown University, the country's most established Roman Catholic and Jesuit College, is situated here.
Today, Georgetown's clean lanes of notable homes and its boutique shops, bistros, eateries, and little historical centers make it a mainstream relief from lines at the shopping center attractions. The C&O Canal, the 184-mile conduit paralleling the Potomac River, starts here, and its towpath is a most loved place for strolling and cycling. Here you can visit with your family.
