Getting the opportunity to tag along on Ryan’s work trip to DC was such a treat. DC was absolutely beautiful during our week long adventure and one of my favorite parts of our trip was exploring Georgetown. All I can say is wow! Berkeley has a beautiful campus, but Georgetown has such a different charm to it. The gorgeous brick buildings, the perfect shops, and the fall leaves just stole my heart, also the fact that there was a giant Anthropologie, maybe helped just a little. I loved walking down Wisconsin Ave (intersecting M Street) and browsing in the shops. I definitely found a few wonderful pieces while in Georgetown.
Georgetown is also home to the famous Georgetown Cupcakes on M Street. Usually you have to wait in the line (if you live in SF, you are used to lines!) but if you go in the morning you can avoid a super long wait. Check out their Twitter or Facebook page before you go to see what the “secret flavor” is of the day. The first 100 people get the cupcake for free if they say the name! After shopping, we walked down K Street, which dead ended into the Georgetown Waterfront, which is absolutely gorgeous! We loved looking at the docked boats, the Potomac River and all the people enjoying outdoor dining. We were unable to eat here, but Sequoia and Farmers Fishers Bakers came highly recommended. A bit higher priced, but there is something on the menus for every budget and every craving. Thank you to our good friend Nirvana for giving us the best Georgetown tips! Seriously, Nirvana was the best DC tour guide.
