The quiet, tree-lined streets north of M Street on either side of Wisconsin Avenue are filled with homes dating back as early as the 18th century and ranging from modest row houses to large estates. Georgetown has been home to many famous and influential people, from politicians and presidents to journalists and celebrities, and is often used as the backdrop for movies set in DC.
Many small parks are tucked away in the residential neighborhood, as well as three historic houses/museums–Tudor Place, Dumbarton House, and Dumbarton Oaks.
