Georgetown: Shop Local, Buy Local.
Shop close to home, and enjoy the historic neighborhood. There are more than 450 places where you can shop or eat, according to the Georgetown Business Improvement District, which has brightened up at the center of Wisconsin Avenue and M Street with an illuminated ornament with ribbons floating above the traffic. The silver Christmas trees shine at the eastern and western edges of our town. The street lamps are decks with evergreens and lights. It is a great place to shop, and stop for lunch or dinner after shopping. Some business owners have already notices an increase in gift buying this year, compared to 2011.
"Deck the Halls. Forget the Malls" is this season's slogan by the Georgetown BID, which offers free rides for shoppers on Saturdays. "Getting around Georgetown is easy and fun this holiday season. Hop into a pedicab and cruise to your favorite Georgetown shops. Complimentary pedicab rides will be available every Saturday from Nov. 24 through Dec. 15, noon to 5 p.m."
Take time to take it all in. We live in a special place. Walk through your town and your city, and see the world refreshed by the joys and wishes of this season. And shop in Georgetown, D.C.
