Georgetown is a historic neighborhood and commercial district located in NW, DC along the Potomac River. The commercial district is situated primarily along M Street and Wisconsin Avenue, whereas the residential neighborhood goes as far out as Whitehaven Street, Rock Creek Park, and the Georgetown University Campus.
Many commuters connect into DC from MD via Clara Barton Parkway and MacArthur Blvd or from Northern Virginia from the linking Key Bridge across the Potomac. There are no Metro stations within the immediate neighborhood although there are three stations roughly 1 mile from the center of Georgetown. Those stations are Rosslyn, Foggy Bottom-GWU, and DuPont Circle.
M Street- the main two-way street through Georgetown is predominately commercial space, which include many internationally recognized and high-end retail flagship stores. The dense residential area consists of primarily quaint early 20th Century townhomes. Its later century real estate can be found along the waterfront in low-rise condominium buildings.
District of Columbia Public Schools serve the Georgetown neighborhood including Hyde Elementary School, Hardy Middle School and Wilson High School. Private schools include Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School and Georgetown Day School.
Georgetown is home to the beautiful Dumbarton Oaks and Capital Crescent Trail. The Key Bridge Boathouse is popular for its seasonal Potomac River activities. Local employees and residents flock to the Georgetown waterfront after work for dining and drinking at its handful of popular restaurants with attractive outdoor seating. For tourists, after a day of sightseeing, shopping in Georgetown is an easy escape every spring and summer.
