Region Description:

Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital, is the center of governmental and political activity in the United States and an architecturally distinguished city with world class museums, readily identifiable national monuments and government buildings, and corporate and trade association and nonprofit organization headquarters. It has an excellent public transportation system.

The Georgetown business district is a bustling center of activity with substantial shopping opportunities, restaurants, clubs, and an active waterfront. The Georgetown residential area near the University retains an 18th and 19th century charm with vintage townhouses and brick sidewalks.

Historically, Georgetown was a thriving Maryland tobacco port in the 1700’s. When the District of Columbia was carved out of Maryland and Virginia, Georgetown was included within the District’s boundaries. The City of Washington, originally a separate village within the District, grew into and annexed Georgetown in the 1800’s.

Washington, D.C., is about two hours from Atlantic coast beaches and about two hours from the mountains in Virginia and West Virginia.
