The waterfront neighborhood of Georgetown in Washington, D.C., is one of the capital city’s most expensive areas to live, shop and eat, but a bit of creativity and movement away from the main drag of M Street will offer much more than the designer shops and Four Seasons have to offer.

 

Visitors to Georgetown can easily spend hours window-shopping along M Street Northwest, where shops like Betsey Johnson, Calvin Klein, All Saints and Michael Kors line the road. Meander off the main thoroughfare to find the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, which runs parallel to M Street and the Potomac River and serves as a great backdrop for historical photos.

 

For a wallet-friendly lunch, visit Stachowski’s Market for a made-to-order sandwich from the butchery, likely large enough to save half of it for another day.

 

Head south down the hilly streets to the Georgetown Waterfront along the banks of the Potomac River. Here you’ll find some green space in which to relax and soak up views of the Kennedy Center in the distance. Stroll along the riverfront or people-watch from one of the few sunlit restaurant terraces, which tend to fill up with people, especially on weekend afternoons. Alternatively, stop by the clandestine but cool Baked & Wired, a cupcake shop and café where the sweets are arguably better than those at the famous Georgetown Cupcake on M Street. Grab a moist cupcake wrapped in wax paper and a coffee, and lounge in the grassy park along the river’s banks.

 

To end an easy day in Georgetown, grab a casual dinner at Chaia, a veggie-friendly taqueria with tacos like creamy kale and potato; citrus-roasted beets; and chipotle sweet potato hash.
