Things to Do in Georgetown

View Map

Situated just south of the city’s center, Georgetown is a burgeoning district with a trendy, bohemian flair.

An older, industrial neighborhood, Georgetown began a renaissance in the 90s with brick warehouse spaces transforming into bars, coffee shops, record stores and lofts. Artists and creative types are drawn to the area as it more affordable than most downtown neighborhoods.

Originally incorporated in order to avoid harsh prohibition laws, Georgetown was known for its many watering holes and the enormous Rainier Brewery. The tradition of drink and merriment continues today and you’ll find a number of enticing taverns as you stroll down main drag Airport Way.

Continue walking south to Oxbow Park where you can marvel at the comically oversized cowboy hat and boots. The park is also home to a community garden and playground.

On the surface Georgetown appears industrialized and somewhat barren, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised by this quickly blossoming community with a delightful business district and and friendly locals.
