Scavenger Hunt in Georgetown

For a recent summer mutual activity with the Laurels, we decided to go for a fun outing that we wouldn't have been able to do on a school night. We took a field trip to Georgetown, explored for a while, then got a treat at Baked and Wired before heading home. I wanted more of a framework for our explorations around town and thought a photo scavenger hunt would be perfect, unfortunately I could not locate a scavenger hunt that was not run by a tour company that charged an arm and a leg. So I made my own. Below you will see the hunt and the pictures we took along the way. Here you will find a printable version of the hunt.

Georgetown Scavenger Hunt

Founded in 1751, Georgetown predates Washington, and it remained a separate city from Washington until 1871. The name of town came from either reigning King George II of Britain, or George Gordon and George Beall, owners of most of the land at the time the city was founded.
