The Wharf On the Waterfront
Washington D.C. may be situated inland but it is nonetheless a waterfront city, thanks to the Potomac river. Among the most vibrant and interesting neighborhoods to visit is the Wharf, a lively mile-long stretch along the river with numerous exciting retailers, interesting restaurants, and the nation’s oldest operating fish market. With multiple intimate music venues and the award-winning Anthem Concert Hall, there is something for everyone when it comes to the performance arts.
Georgetown on my mind
With lovely cobblestone streets full of beautiful row houses, Georgetown is a quintessential part of the city for any visitor. Good restaurants, interesting shops, not to mention a gorgeous park along the waterfront. As Washington’s oldest section, this pre-revolutionary part of town has more than its share of tales of the eerie and unexplained, and if ghost stories float your boat then check out the free walking tours where historians offer an insight to some lesser known chapters of the city’s past.
