Georgetown is one of the most sought-after areas in Washington, D.C., with typically high price points for beautifully restored historic brownstone townhomes, detatched single-family homes, and condominiums. There are also high-end residences along the Georgetown Waterfront.
Washington's wealthiest and most powerful reside in Georgetown, including John Kerry, media icon Ben Bradlee, billionaire Michael Saylor, and even the young John and Jackie Kennedys.
There are many high end and popular restaurants and shopping options in Georgetown, including Morton's, Cafe Milano, Peacock Cafe, Bodega, Mie n Yu, Bangkok Bistro, and Pizza Paradiso. Shop at Betsey Johnson, North Face, Patagonia, BCBG, Banana Republic and J. Crew, or high end/designer secondhand shops like Ella Rue, Annie Creamcheese, and Second Time Around. There is a robust nighlife, too, because Georgetown is the location of popular watering holes like Smith Point, George, Third Edition, Paolo's, Saloun, Garrett's, and Paper Moon.
Regarding education options, Georgetown Visitation and the nearby National Cathedral School are popular prep schools for high school-aged girls. Georgetown Day School is also located here. For public schools, the area is served by Hyde elementary, Hardy Middle, and Walt Whitman high schools. Georgetown University is also, of course, located within Georgetown.

Golfers can spend the day at nearby courses: Congressional Country Club, Kenwood, and Chevy Chase Country Club are some of the best options.
