Old Towns, Georgetown and Alexandria
Georgetown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington, DC, served as a major port and

Georgetown is a vibrant community with upscale shops, bars and restaurants along its cobblestone
streets. Many of the homes along the tree-lined streets are 200 year-old restored row houses with
beautiful gardens. Georgetown housing is expensive, so most Georgetown University students live
on campus or rent apartments uptown or nearby in Virginia.
Alexandria is a quaint historic town just on the other side of the Potomac River from Washington,
DC. Dating back to 1749, Alexandria’s riverfront was an important colonial port during the colonial,
revolutionary and Civil War periods. Today Old Town Alexandria is a revitalized waterfront with
cobblestone streets, colonial houses and churches, museums, shops and restaurants.
