Supporters of bringing a gondola to the DC area are once again bringing up the plan, hoping to someday make it reality. Some area business leaders and those with political ties believe its still a good idea, years after the plan first came to public light.

Initiated five years ago as part of its 15-year strategic plan, the Georgetown Business Improvement District proposed the gondola to connect Georgetown to Rosslyn. Georgetown doesn’t have a Metro, and proponents believe a gondola could not only be built faster, but with a much smaller price tag than other transportation solutions.

Just two years ago, a study took a closer look at the plan, maintaining the gondola was a feasible proposal. Stretching across

c & o canal georgetown

Winding more than 180 miles from Georgetown to Cumberland, the C & O Canal contains plenty of space to explore and discover. Officially named the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, it runs through some of DC’s most affluent communities. It also however, offers a peaceful escape from some of the area’s more crowded destinations.

The canal actually dates back to the days of George Washington, when the dream first came about to build a canal connecting up with Chesapeake Bay and the Ohio River. Although it never made it that far, some of the originally proposed canal was eventually built, along with a towpath running alongside for mules to help pull boats upstream. Mostly used for transporting coal, plus things like lumber, flour and limestone, occasionally

georgetown exorcist steps - washington dc

Just in time for Halloween, one of the scariest movies in history could soon receive a true mark in history for generations to come. A set of stairs in Georgetown best known to locals and some visitors as “The Exorcist” steps is in line for a possible historic landmark designation.

A group recently filed an application with the Historic Preservation Review Board. They want the 97 steps leading from M Street to Prospect Street, along with a nearby retaining wall, considered for historic status.

There’s already a plaque in the area noting the significance of The Exorcist Steps and the part they played in the movie. Old movie buffs likely remember the scene that played out in the early 1970s when one of the characters in The Exorcist film, a

wormley row - washington dc

A multi-million dollar Georgetown condo is now off the market. The property, formerly owned by Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitals and Wizards, reportedly went under contract and sold.  Leonsis had the 2,500 square foot condo on the market for $3.2 million. According to records, he purchased the unit in 2009 for $2.59 million. Along with a multi-million dollar price tag, the property also mandates monthly homeowner’s association dues topping $2,000.

Located within Wormley Row, the property is the conversion project of an old schoolhouse, made into upscale condos and townhomes about a decade ago. The building, itself though, dates back to the late 1800s.

Georgetown’s popular M Street corridor is no longer the only option in town, as more and more foodies are starting to branch out, exploring the many new opportunities available in other DC area neighborhoods. While Georgetown boasted nearly four-dozen restaurants about a decade ago, some reports suggest that number’s now been cut in half.

While some blame rising retail rents in Georgetown as driving out some of the establishments, other DC area neighborhoods appear to be reaping the benefits of new attention. Places such as The Wharf, H Street, Logan Circle and Columbia Heights are all said to be drawing in new dining options, as are some newly emerging neighborhoods such as Brookland and Petworth.

New options for diners include Bloomingdale,
