Georgetown Houses

I told you all that I had a lot more pictures from Georgetown! If you missed my first tour of Georgetown post, I had a day trip in Washington, D.C. with Matt and Annika, and since I grew up there and had done all the museums and monuments many times, I took them on a tour of Georgetown. Georgetown is one of my favorite spots in Washington, D.C. because the architecture is so beautiful and historic, and there isn’t a metro stop nearby so it’s pretty quiet with fewer tourists than other areas.

In my first post, I had pictures of all the shops and quaint old buildings on M Street, and this post will feature some of the houses in the area. Since I’m a history nerd and love all things old, I LOVE Victorian houses! Since Victorian buildings are Georgetown’s specialty, that’s probably the main reason I love that area so much! And I love it even more because there is a street called Dent Place! I’ve been to it before and I love places with my name (fun fact: there are Julia Dent streets all over St. Louis, Missouri because that Ulysses S. Grant’s wife’s name! Which my parents didn’t know until after I was born, funnily enough), but it was a little out of our way so we didn’t make it there this time.

The houses are also very bright and colorful, which I love! If I had the money (I don’t even want to know how expensive these houses are!) and a job in the area again, I would move to Georgetown in a heartbeat!

Yellow is my favorite color, so I loved all the yellow pops of color! 🙂

  2. Such a fun post! I love facades so much. Despite living in the US my entire life I have barely explored anything on the east side of the country so I definitely need to make it out there someday. Pinning this!

    I went to school outside of DC and used to go to Georgetown quite frequently. I love the quaint and historic feeling there even though it’s in DC. Lovely as always!!

    What great photos! Now I want to visit again to see this area of the city! Thank you for the beautiful tour! 🙂

  7. Great photos! It’s nice to see someone document the city we live in. When traveling we often don’t think of home as a destination to document.
