If you’ve visited Georgetown, you’ve seen the quaint cobblestone streets and know of the rich history this charming D.C. neighborhood holds. I have always been a very big fan of the beautiful waterfront neighborhood that is unlike any other in the Washington, D.C. area. Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown is fortunate enough to be located right in the heart, next to the historic C&O Canal and a short walk to the Georgetown Waterfront. For those who have yet to visit D.C. and Georgetown, I wanted to share with you a tour of some of my favorite things to do in this beautiful neighborhood.
I invite you to take a tour of Georgetown with me as I visit my favorite 4 places on a Saturday!
#1 – Visit Baked & Wired
If you’re like me and you need to start your morning off with an energizing cup of coffee, I have just the place for you! Family owned artsy coffee shop and bakery located on Thomas Jefferson Street has the best espresso drinks and cupcakes to match. Choose from over 20 options of creatively baked options while enjoying the local ambiance.
#2 – Stroll Down The Georgetown Waterfront
When you are all fueled up on coffee, make your way down one block to the Georgetown Waterfront to enjoy boat watching and family fun water sports. Whether you get behind the wheel of a kayak and steer through the Potomac River or relax on the steps leading to the Waterfront, you’ll be sure to enjoy your time in the sun!
#3 – Visit Dumbarton Oaks
Treat your eyes to a beautiful renowned landscape gardens by visiting Dumbarton Oaks. Enriched with history from the early 1800’s, the home offers rooms of original art from different eras.
#4 – Indulge in a burger at The Grill Room
After walking around town, feast on one of my favorite burgers in The Grill Room made by Executive Chef Frank Ruta, the Fried Duck Egg Burger! It will satisfy your every craving.
I love sharing the gem of Georgetown with everyone that comes to visit. There is so much to see and experience while you’re in Washington, D.C., being in the Nation’s Capital has all the advantages any traveler would look for. I would love to see pictures of your D.C. travels and Georgetown finds. Share your photos with me at @CapellaDC so I can share them with our community!
