Georgetown was founded in 1751, nearly half a century before the District of Columbia, as a bustling port city on the banks of the Potomac. Today Georgetown is a neighborhood with a vibrant business district, an active residential community, and a popular recreational waterfront. It is D.C.’s premier destination and ‘playground’ for shopping, dining, history, fitness, and family fun.
Amenities include trails and the C&O Canal Towpath and Capital Crescent Trails are popular among walkers, joggers, and cyclists heading west, and Rock Creek Park Trail travels north from the waterfront. Georgetown is also home to more than 20 fitness-related businesses including athletic stores, yoga, barre, and personal training studios, and boathouses along the Potomac River. Kids love running through the fountain at The Georgetown Waterfront Park, and The Washington Harbour offers a calendar of events for people of all ages, including live music, a synchronized water fountain show, and in cooler weather, ice skating on the region’s largest outdoor rink.
