Georgetown is a neighborhood on the West side of Washington which is not near any Metro station or the major tourist sights, but makes for a very pleasant half day walk.
There is a shuttle service offered from Dupont Circle which charges $1.00 one way (see the website mentioned below). This is more of a residential eating and shopping area and there is a lot of 1800's architecture to admire. Two good examples are on N St East and West of 33rd St.
Cox's Row, built 1817, is considered the finest group of Federal row houses in Washington.
Smith's Row consists of 5 nearly identical row houses built in 1815.
