GEORGETOWN

A CULTURAL HUB

Bounded on the south by Boeing Field, this industrial warehouse district has mastered bohemian blue-collar chic. Rail yards, antique shops, and refurbished lofts dot the neighborhood, where everyone from artistic beatniks to hipster families has carved out a spot in this creative hub.

EAT GEORGETOWN

FROM ARTSY TO UPSCALE

The artsy vibe attracts opposites like the punky Georgetown Liquor Company with its vegan comfort food and The Corson Building, a boutique showcase for James Beard Award–winning chef Matt Dillon. Locals also love Fonda La Catrina for its upscale Mexican and the Star Brass Works Lounge, with its shuffleboard, salvaged décor, and house-infused Earl Grey gin.

SHOP GEORGETOWN

REALLY COOL STUFF

Vintage kitsch abounds at Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, where artisans sell their goods inside Airstream trailers. District also traffics in art, irony, and found objects, while Carleton Avenue Grocery, the city’s oldest continuously operating grocery store, sells locally sourced provisions among the antiques.

PLAY GEORGETOWN

DO IT ALL

If you see one thing here, have it be the iconic Museum of Flight, where everything from an Air Force One to a space shuttle trainer resides. Get flexible and have fun at the School of Acrobatics & New Circus Arts, or hit the streets for the neighborhood arts-and-crafts celebration Georgetown Art Attack, every second Saturday.
