Georgetown Glow Lights Up the Neighborhood

Georgetown Glow is arguably one of the most underrated holiday light displays in Washington, DC. For starters, none of the light displays are holiday themed. However, many of the pieces invoke feelings of friendship, joy, and warmth. So you still leave feeling that holiday cheer. The lights are also spread out all over the neighborhood and not just concentrated near the waterfront. This means visitors can explore the streets of Georgetown including holiday window displays and restaurants.

A few of our favorite displays are below.


Georgetown Glow will be lit nightly from 5 pm to 10 pm until January 7.  Keep this holiday outing on budget with inexpensive options a few streets away from the waterfront like tacos from El Centro or pizza from &pizza.
