You probably know that Georgetown is considered an upscale neighborhood today, but did you realize it has played host to illustrious residents since as early as 1703? You'll get the inside scoop on this famous neighborhood when you sign up for the Georgetown Heights tour, courtesy of WalkingTown DC.
This free tour tells the tale of the wealthy residents of Georgetown and their servants while you actually walk by their homes and servants' quarters.
