Georgetown has something that thrills everyone, from fast-fashion clothing chains like H&M and Zara to upscale boutiques like Hu's Wear to old-fashioned flagships like Barne's & Nobles. Art and antique shops are the best part of Georgetown, which keep bargain hunters busy. Look out for Georgetown’s largest gallery, Creighton-Davis (3222 M Street, NW), and Village Art & Craft (1353 Wisconsin Avenue, NW) for funky, ethnic jewelry and knick-knacks.
