Georgetown: Easy On the Eyes

One post will not do my trip to Washington DC justice so I will have to write a few to share all the gorgeous photos I took during my four day stay during the Fourth of July weekend. If you know me you know that I am a history freak and when I booked the hotel for our trip my homegurls and I stayed in the historic district of DC- Georgetown. I am so glad I decided upon this location because in my opinion it is the most beautiful part of this city. Judge for yourself...














Georgetown used to be the home of the Nacotchanke Indians until the arrival of the British in 1696 who eventually set up a slave port to carry out their immoral practices. Today many of the buildings remain including beautiful churches on practically every corner and a very old cemetery on Wisconsin Avenue which has tombstones that date back to the 1700's. I know this because my ladies and I had a fireworks show on the property (FYI: I paid my respects to the dead prior to the light show). Georgetown today feels very much like a college town because of the university being very close by and the majority of the people who live there are white, which is a bummer because I missed my brown and black folks. If you enjoy spending money on beautiful clothes, shoes and such material pleasures like I do this is definitely your spot because everything is here- Betsey Johnson, Gap, Steve Madden, Sephora, United Colors of Benetton, Barnes & Noble and the list continues. There is also an abundance of restaurants, coffee shops galore and the Metro System conveniently runs through this part of town frequently and at $1.35 per ride you can ditch your rental car and check out the beautiful memorials downtown. More of my DC adventure coming soon...

  1. Love the cemetery pic, maybe you should have played some of the Nacotchanke Indians tribal music on a boom box to awaken the spirits prior to your light show.
