Georgetown is a quintessential American East Coast town full of students, rich people, bars, food, and shopping. To tell you the truth, I’m kind of a groupie when it comes to cool politicians and news anchors. Yes, this LA girl doesn’t care when she sees Hollywood celebrities, but will swoon at the sight of Bill Clinton. And THIS is the place to see DC celebs. I’ve heard that, Georgetown resident, Madeline Albright does yoga at the Four Seasons there. My co-worker even bumped into George Stephanopoulos… sexy.

Anyhow, if you’re visiting DC, you should spend an afternoon at Georgetown.

How to spend a leisurely day at Georgetown.

1. Eating: Stop off at Georgetown Cupcakes and get in line. Started by two recent college grads, Georgetown Cupcakes are selling these tasty deserts faster than they can keep them in the shelves. After you polish it off 3 seconds after you leave, work up an appetite for Mi N Yu, a trendy Asian Fusion tapas restaurant that is as great as it’s new age-decor. Mi N Yu- 3125 M Street, NW, Washington DC 20007. Georgetown Cupcakes- 1209 Potomac St NW, Washington, DC 20007.

2. Shopping: If you love to shop, this is the place to be. Sure, they have all the typical stores you’d find at the mall, but they also have cute boutiques and loads of places to burn your credit card. Most of the great shopping is on M Street and Wisconsin Ave, but veer off the high pedestrian paths and you’re likely to find a fun boutique staffed with a chic college student to help you pick out your accessories. Personally, I love shopping at Dean and Deluca and Marvelous Markets whenever I need to look at pretty things I shouldn’t eat. Dean and Deluca-3276 M Street NW, Washington, DC, 20007. Marvelous Market-3217 P Street NW, Washington, DC, 20007

3. People watching: If shopping and eating isn’t for you… Wait, no….seriously, really? then grab a table at the restaurant patio and sip some ice tea. On a beautiful day in Georgetown, people shed their stiff grey suits and become the trendy chic population of the Potomac.
