Georgetown Houses

April 11, 2016 14 Comments

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!

This house isn’t very Victorian, but I thought it was really neat!

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

    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!!

    Oh those Georgetown homes are beautiful! They remind me of the ones we found in Louisville, Kentucky! #blogpostsaturday

    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.
