To put it simply, a walk through Washington's tony Georgetown neighborhood is a venture through time — of 200-year-old mansions and their eccentric owners, of fortunes in trade won and lost, of marvelous architecture from Federal to Victorian, of the once-bustling freedman community Herring Hill, of political intrigue, of green preservation and urban renewal. And of course no one can mention Georgetown without the Kennedys. In the 1950s John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline almost single-handedly turned the neighborhood into the city's politically fashionable place to live. Your guide will point out the houses of the movers and shakers, as well as the remarkable historic properties here that are open to the public (and yes, The Exorcist steps.) This two-hour, two-mile tour winds up in Georgetown's shopping and restaurant district just in time for lunch. Or if you're on a roll, your guide can point you to the C&O Canal, the historic and bucolic waterway. (Be prepared to climb a hill or two.)
On this walking tour of Washington, D.C.'s Georgetown neighborhood you will see the house where budding chef and cookbook author Julie Child once lived.

Find out the location of one of Georgetown's original manor houses. See where Senator John F. Kennedy and wife Jacqueline lived when he was elected U.S. President and peer down the eerie 'Exorcist Steps.'
