We all like watching hair-raising horror movies. But who would miss a chance to experience the place where the climax scene of the famed movie 'The Exorcist' was shot? Tourists flock here in Georgetown to see the Exorcist Stairs. Many other movies and television series have also been filmed here. The steep steps and the somewhat ancient and dark ruined structure adds to the effect. If you are lucky, you may also get to see a film being shot and your favorite actors getting possessed by the ghost—right in front of you!

This post office warrants special attention due to the rather monumental building in which it is housed. Originally built as a customs house, it is made of sturdy granite and has two sets of shallow steps, also granite, leading up to its over sized doors. The inside is majestic and still functions as a regular post office. A visit here kills two birds with one stone; you can view a historic site, and buy stamps for those postcards you have been meaning to send!

The Rosslyn Metro Station is home to one of the longest escalators in the world. Measuring up to 207 feet (63 meters), a journey on this mechanized stairway takes more than three minutes. It is hard to imagine what happens if the escalator stops midway; but according to lamenting travelers, that's quite a possibility. The well maintain metro station is frequented by commuters as well as tourists who come to see the escalator.
