The Georgetown neighbourhood welcomes visitors with convenient options for restaurants. The neighbourhood's friendly people and college atmosphere are just a couple of its charming qualities. You can satisfy your cultural palate with art and theatre. Hotels in Georgetown provide a good starting point for sightseeing in and around the Washington area.
The museums and theatres provide some cultural flavour, while the monuments and historic sites offer insight into local lore. Browse the collections at Dumbarton Oaks, Museum of Contemporary Art, or Veerhoff Galleries. You can attend a show at JFK Center for Performing Arts, Kennedy Center, and Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater. Monuments like Justice William O. Douglas Statue, La Maison Française, and Kahlil Gibran Memorial Garden honour the area. Tudor Place, Exorcist Stairs, and Old Stone House are a few landmarks that can't be missed. Take a tour of campus around Georgetown University, George Washington University, or University of the District of Columbia. Volta Park, Francis Pool, and Smithsonian's National Zoo will provide enjoyment for the whole family.
Many visitors like to do some shopping while in town, but there are a number of other activities. Book Hill Park, Francis Scott Key Memorial Park, and Bishop John Carroll Statue are some scenic spots that are popular with the locals. Looking for a little retail therapy? Consider a shopping trip to Cady's Alley, Cadys Alley Shopping Center, and Georgetown Park. If you're looking for something else to do, head to William I Jacobs Recreational Complex, Bender Arena, and Reeves Athletic Complex & Greenberg Track.
Some of the area's most popular sights are Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, and Washington Monument. Montrose Park, Father Patrick Healy Memorial, and Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Monument are other must-sees.
