DC’s most historic neighborhood turns into a winter wonderland each year as the Holiday season comes around. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite things to do in Georgetown once the temperature drops:

 

Go on a Winter Sightseeing Tour

Georgetown’s 18th and 19th century homes are fun to see year-round, but they are especially beautiful during the winter months when homeowners adorn their properties with twinkling lights and evergreen wreaths.

Each Sunday Washington Walks organizes a two hour tour of the area, starting at 10am. Visit their website or call (202) 484-1565 for more information.

 

Go Ice Skating at the Washington Harbor

Georgetown is home to DC’s largest outdoor ice skating rink, located alongside the Potomac River at the Washington Harbor. Each year from mid-November until March, the fountain at Washington Harbor is frozen for recreational skating, parties on the ice, and ice skating lessons for all levels of experience.

For more information about ice skating at The Washington Harbor, visit their site.

 

Enjoy a Winter Dinner Cruise Aboard the Odyssey

Stay warm during the winter months aboard the Odyssey, DC’s premiere cruise ship. Enjoy freshly prepared cuisine, live music for dancing, and gorgeous views of the city as you cruise along the Potomac River.

Explore a Pop Up Art Exhibit

Georgetown GLOW are just one of the many short-lived winter art exhibits that Georgetown hosts each year. Organized by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID), such events encourage local artists to perform or contribute art. If you’re a creative, consider contributing to the cause!

Check the community calendar to look for upcoming exhibits and art events.

 

See Faberge Eggs at Hillwood Museum & Gardens

Marjorie  Merriweather-Post’s house in Georgetown is often recognized for its beautiful gardens but, during winter, it’s her collections of paintings, clothing, and – most notably – faberge eggs, that attract visitors to her estate. A thorough tour of the heiress and Ambassador’s wife’s house is well worth a visit this Holiday season.
