Georgetown has a really nice campus with several historical buildings built between 1762-1789. Quite amazing to see what they were able to build that long ago and then see how poor architecture has become in 2017!

This is a must visit if you're in the vicinity. The architecture on the Healy hall is amazing and a walk around the university is recommended.

One of the oldest campus in the country and definitely one of the best. The architecture is gorgeous and the grounds very very clean.

Founded in 1789, Georgetown University is worth a visit! It's architecture is beautiful and drenched in history. Do a little reading before your visit - lots of hidden treasures on campus where historic figures spoke (i.e. George Washington on the Old North steps).

I agree with other reviewers that comment that the university is a wonderful place to walk around. Beautiful buildings with a long history. The surrounding neighborhood is full of scenic interesting old row homes. A short walk from the shopping district and restaurants.

In the heart of Georgetown, it is worth visiting to admire the architecture and walk around the campus. In addition to the university, you can combine your stroll through campus with visiting shops and restaurants in this bustling neighborhood.

The college buildings and dorms are from a different time. You can close your eyes and feel majesty of a bygone era
