Tips from locals
Old Town is beautiful any time of year, dog friendly, and great for food of all types!
About 20 minutes away, Old Town is sort of like Georgetown, but with easier parking. It's larger also, closeby to water, has a great vibe for going out, going for a walk, and is very charming.
This is a great neighborhood just across from the bridge in to Virginia. It's a great place to walk around get good food and shop.
Great for boutique and thrift shopping, as well as, your normal brand names.

“ No history buff’s trip to D.C. is complete without a visit to George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Home to our first president and his wife Martha, this expansive eighteenth-century estate is remarkable preserved. On what is still an impressive amount of land, you’ll find their stylishly appointed home, lovely gardens and grounds, and several historic outbuildings like a distillery and gristmill. It’s all been carefully preserved, and in some cases extensively restored, and it remains a fascinating look into the way wealthy Americans lived in the period. While this attraction is comprised of a few distinct buildings and does require some outside time, you’ll be able to spend the bulk of your experience in these lovely historic venues to avoid the rain.”
