Georgetown is easily one of the most well-known neighborhoods in Washington, DC. In fact the port of Georgetown was founded before Washington, DC was established. Modern day Georgetown is an elegant blend of rich history and thriving commerce. The Citizen's Association of Georgetown website is a great resource for neighborhood information, current Georgetown news, events and things to do.
Home to Georgetown University and many historic sites, such as Dumbarton Oaks and The Old Stone House there is plenty for visitors and residents to explore. Georgetown also has many beautiful parks such as Montrose Park, C&O Canal and Georgetown Waterfront Park that connects to Washington Harbour. The Georgetowner is a another great source for staying current on local issues and happenings.

The real estate market in Georgetown is as robust as the neighborhood itself. Sales prices and monthly rents are more expensive in Georgetown than elsewhere in the District. However, there is a wide range of ownership opportunities available from 200 year-old beautifully restored row houses to condominiums overlooking the river.
