Georgetown’s shady lanes and cobblestone streets reflect a different side of the Capital than what you’re probably familiar with. It is Washington’s genteel, southern side where Presidents lived when they were just Congressmen, where the Founding Fathers laid out the plans for the city on a tavern bar top, and where historic churches still offer services. While no visit to a pre-revolutionary town is complete without a few scary stories to give you goose bumps, this Historic Georgetown walking tour focuses on the houses and sites of a town that still invokes the image of refinement and class after 300 years. Enjoy commentary from your expert local guide as you pass by notable locations like the Old Stone House Kennedy Homes, Martin’s Tavern, Georgetown University, and Tudor Place Mansion. Explore the diverse architecture and history of this city older than D.C. itself!
