first stop was Martin's Tavern and the "proposal booth"
A favorite cheap date night for us is the "walking tour". There are a plethora of options in the area. But a really fun and romantic one is through the streets of Georgetown. Georgetown is probably one of the coolest "historic" towns that I've ever been in. It's quaint and old-fashioned and charming. It was founded in the mid-1700s and predates DC itself. It's adorable row-houses and federalist architecture is a treat for the eye. And while the whole place is one giant walking tour and shopping bonanza, it is the one centered around the Kennedy's that I truly love. It's important history, and while not in my life time, its not so ancient that its hard to imagine. We have pictures and video that really can connect us to the Kennedy's and the beautiful Jacqueline. Georgetown is their stomping grounds.
the house they lived in pre-Presidency
lived here as Senator
On this tour you can visit the homes where they lived before his Presidency, after President Kennedy's Assassination, their church and several other important Kennedy landmarks. Walking up and down the pint-size streets and you can't help but be swept up in the rich history and the sweet whimsy of it all. And while the transportation and the babysitting (although I strongly suggest you swap with friends! It's cheap and encourages community. We do it!) isn't free, the walking tour is.
Bundle up and bring your hot chocolate, coffee or tea from home and enjoy a nice leisurely stroll in Georgetown. I guarantee you'll love it!
