Georgetown is one the most popular neighborhoods to visit in Washington, D.C. It has a variety of historic attractions plus great dining, shopping, and entertainment.
Because of its popularity with both locals and tourists and because it's not easily accessible by Metrorail, finding parking in Georgetown can be difficult. Before deciding to drive to Georgetown, consider other transit options. The closest Metrorail station is Foggy Bottom-GWU, which is about a 15-minute walk to the heart of the neighborhood.
You can also take the DC Circulator Bus, which provides inexpensive bus service to Georgetown using the Georgetown-Union Station or the Dupont Circle-Georgetown-Rosslyn lines. You can also use the Capital Bikeshare service to get around this cyclist-friendly neighborhood.
If you do decide to drive, know that on-street parking rates are $2 an hour Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Parking is restricted along the neighborhood's main thoroughfares (M Street NW and Wisconsin Avenue NW) and limited to two hours on zoned residential streets in the surrounding area. If you want to be close to the waterfront, look for parking along K Street. To avoid getting ticketed or towed, read signs carefully and make sure to only park in a valid space.
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Parkmobile provide a citywide pay-by-phone parking system that allows visitors to use cell phones to pay for parking.
