Certainly one of the oldest buildings in the entire city, this quaint spot is run by the National Parks Service and has a lovely garden to sit and take a rest in. Built in 1766, it was a car dealership by 1953 when it was taken over for historic preservation. Now it is ours to enjoy and remember a simpler time when tobacco and tall tales traded at the nearby port.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Martin's Tavern, 1264 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007, USA

A Georgetown institution, this restaurant has been locally owned since 1933. The dark wood panels, black and white photos on the wall, and the regulars at the bar give this place a certain sense of nostalgia and ambiance. The classic American fare keeps people coming back year after year with both indoor and outdoor seating

Stop At: Georgetown University, 37th and O Sts. Washington, Washington DC, DC

Founded in 1789, this prestigious Jesuit University is know far and wide for its medical, legal, and undergraduate programs.
