The Charming Georgetown

The Charming Georgetown

Upon moving to Delaware you immediately begin to notice the nods towards colonialism in certain parts of the state. Every now and then you pass by homes with brick exteriors, large white columns and extravagantly large porches that remind us of a time long ago. For Delaware’s county seat, the same can be said.


Georgetown, DE is reminiscent of our nation’s first capital, Annapolis, MD.  With brick sidewalks, colonial style homes and warm landscaping scattered through its layout, it is a beautiful symbol of a traditional, whimsical American neighborhood.  You know what we mean… the kind that Ozzy and Harriet lived in, or the one that Leave it Beaver rode his bike through.  You feel as though you can walk around sipping a cup of coffee on a Fall day and wave to neighbors as you pass by.  It is quaint, warm and functional.

You see, in reality, Georgetown is just as much business as it is pleasure.  This city became the “county seat” back in 1791.  The area was built around a circle, which is now referred to as a historic district.  An interesting fact about its location is that it sat in a position where it actually divided men and women during the Civil War.  Within its borders were both Union and Confederate fighters.  Since then, its residents have better learned how to get along and Georgetown now hosts many government buildings and court workers.


Amidst the charisma and charm in Georgetown are plenty of special venues and restaurants to visit including the Brick Restaurant and Tavern, Fat Daddy’s BBQ and Upper Crust Deli and Coffee Shop.  The Brick Restaurant and Tavern is actually attached to the historic Brick Hotel on the Circle and is just one of numerous options to lodge while visiting.  No matter where you wander in this quaint city, you are sure to find a smile on your face as you take in the sweet serenity and beauty that sits atop this quiet and yet pivotal place.
