Visiting Georgetown

Last Friday I attended an event as part of the Georgetown Ritz lecture series where Ankie Barnes of BarnesVanze Architects talked about the history of the neighborhood as well as listing his favorite spots to visit.As an established Georgetown architect, Ankie's list was a fascinating 'to do' list for anyone who visits DC or even lives here!While I have lived in DC for 10 years myself, I had no idea the figures on the Buffalo Dumbarton Bridge above were modeled after Buffalo Bill!Don't miss the historical buildings, great shopping or delicious treats at Leopolds in Cady's Alley.The Farmers and Mechanics Bank (where I actually do my own banking) is a lovely landmark at the main intersection of Georgetown and don't skip the lobby. Don't miss this checklist!
