Georgetown is D.C.'s original destination neighborhood, where the past greets the present at every bustling, cobblestone corner. Though Georgetown is often recognized for its world-class shopping on M Street and charming independent boutiques along Wisconsin Avenue, outdoor enthusiasts also flock here for some of the most picturesque kayaking, jogging, and cycling backdrops the city has to offer. Foodies aren’t forgotten, either, with restaurants frequented by the POTUS to enough cupcake, doughnut, macaron and coffee shops to satisfy any sweet tooth and caffeine craving.
The Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the accessibility, attractiveness and overall appeal of the neighborhood. From marketing, communications and special events, to transportation, economic development, destination management and streetscape, the Georgetown BID contributes to the vitality and quality of life in Georgetown.
Popular BID programs and events include the annual Georgetown GLOW light-art installation exhibition during the holidays, the French Market festival in Book Hill, free outdoor summer movies and yoga classes at Georgetown Waterfront Park, and Fall’s Taste of Georgetown.
