This historic neighborhood is lined with trendy boutiques and fine restaurants. The abundant nightlife in Georgetown draws both locals and visitors. Just wander down busy M Street and Wisconsin Avenue and explore the eclectic shops, or stop in for a pint at one of the numerous pubs overflowing with college kids. After you get your fill of the hoopla, stroll off the main strip onto the tree-shaded streets filled with Georgian and Victorian townhouses that are home to many politicians and celebrities.

The former home of George and Martha Washington's granddaughter, Tudor Place offers formal gardens and a house full of artifacts from the Washington family. The mansion was designed by Dr. William Thornton who also engineered the U.S. Capitol. For those with an interest in early American history, but without the time to travel to the more-famous Mount Vernon, this museum within the city is ideal. Docents lead the frequent tours.

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!

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!
