See the best of Georgetown while uncovering amazing tales and nooks (but not crannies). One of the best things about this hunt is its variety, covering parts of the neighborhood’s three distinct personalities. Highlights include a 19th-century canal (and maybe a mule or two), chic shops in historic buildings on M Street, JFK’s first Washington home (and the neighbor honored by reporters for providing coffee in the cold), the birthplace of the computer, a former prison that Lincoln visited, the Old Stone House and its tranquil garden, “sunken” houses, magnificent mansions, movie locations, hidden alleys, a tavern where Founding Fathers tippled, and a bar that was the birthplace of a famous cheesy song.
