Washington D.C.

District of Columbia (Washington D.C.)

Neighborhoods Foggy Bottom &Georgetown

Foggy Bottom
Between the White House and Georgetown lies Foggy Bottom, named for the fog that rose off of the Potomac. The neighborhood is a mixture of residences, office buildings (like IMF and World Bank), restaurants and hotels. The George Washington University, the infamous Watergate complex and the John. F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, one of the nation's premier performing arts institutions and home to the acclaimed National Symphony Orchestra, are all located in this section of town.
Metro: Foggy Bottom-GWU

Hop the bright red and silver Circulator bus to this prestigious neighborhood. At once historic and hip, Georgetown's cobble-stoned streets are lined with some of the most famous names in fashion, boutiques featuring a number of up-and-coming local designers and restaurants and bars attracting a well-heeled clientele. Hotels range from luxurious to all-suite family-friendly properties. The waterfront district is centered on Wisconsin and M streets, NW and is home to Georgetown University, Tudor Place Historic House and Garden, Kreeger Museum, Old Stone House and the C&O Canal with 180 miles of biking and hiking trails.
