About This Deal

To put it simply, a walk through Washington’s tony Georgetown neighborhood is a venture through time — of 200-year-old mansions and their eccentric owners, of fortunes in trade won and lost, of marvelous architecture from Federal to Victorian, of the once-bustling freedman community Herring Hill, of political intrigue, of green preservation and urban renewal. And of course no one can mention Georgetown without the Kennedys. In the 1950s John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline almost single-handedly turned the neighborhood into the city’s politically fashionable place to live. Your guide will point out the houses of the movers and shakers, as well as the remarkable historic properties here that are open to the public. This two-hour, two-mile tour winds up in Georgetown’s shopping and restaurant district just in time for lunch. Or if you’re on a roll, your guide can point you to the C&O Canal, the historic and bucolic waterway. (Be prepared to climb a hill or two.)

On this walking tour of Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood you will see the house where budding chef and cookbook author Julia Child once lived. Learn about the Federal-style architecture that defines Georgetown and hear about the oldest African American church in Washington, D.C. Find out the location of one of Georgetown’s original manor houses. See where Senator John F. Kennedy and wife Jacqueline lived when he was elected U.S. President.

Meet your guide at the little park located at 28th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW to begin your walking tour through the Georgetown Historic District. The walk will travel approximately two miles through the residential portion of Georgetown, concluding at the Francis Scott Key Park. From the park, you can quickly walk to any number of cafes and restaurants for lunch or head to the breathtaking Georgetown waterfront to see another aspect of the neighborhood. Be prepared to walk up or down a hilly street or two.
