The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.

Georgetown is a neighborhood located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., along the Potomac River waterfront. It was formerly a separate city, predating the establishment of the District of Columbia and the founding of Washington, D.C.

Georgetown was incorporated as a town and first regularly settled in 1751, when the area was part of the British colony of the Province of Maryland, later one of the 13 original states. It is situated on the fall line, Georgetown was the farthest point upstream to which oceangoing boats could navigate the Potomac River. It grew into a thriving port and became a key point for transferring goods, particularly tobacco, from boats on the Potomac to boats on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.

At present many leading figures in politics, media, and commerce reside in this upper-bracket community. Current inhabitants include Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, past Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Clinton aide George Stephanopolous, and Montana Senator Max Baucus, among others. High-end developments and gentrification have revitalized Georgetown's formerly blighted industrial waterfront. One remnant is the District's old refuse incinerator smokestack, preserved as a historic landmark and, as of 2003, incorporated into the layout of a newly built Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Whitehurst Freeway has been proposed for demolition.

Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Georgetown enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
