Key Bridge Boathouse Hosts Group Paddle for Flyover

May 7, 2015

On Friday, May 8, something special is happening in D.C. To honor the heroes who fought in WWII, one of the most diverse arrays of World War II aircraft ever assembled will fly above the skies of Washington for the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day, as part of the Arsenal of Democracy World War II Victory Capitol Flyover. The historically sequenced warbird formations will fly over the Potomac River and National Mall starting at approximately 12:10 p.m.

Of course, the best place to view this historic event is from the water! Head to the Key Bridge Boathouse (3500 Water St. NW) at 11:00 am for a group paddle to the tip of Roosevelt Island to watch this spectacular event. Normal rental prices apply; free for season pass holders.

Become a Georgetown Ambassador

April 30, 2015

In Spring 2015 the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) will open a Georgetown Visitor Center to welcome visitors and provide an overview/orientation to the neighborhood. Our goal is to ensure all visitors to Georgetown have the best possible experience by providing excellent customer service and insider knowledge. The Visitor Center will be located in the lobby of Georgetown Park, at the corner of M & Potomac Streets (across from Dean and DeLuca).

The Georgetown BID is currently seeking volunteers to serve as Neighborhood Ambassadors and staff the Visitor Center. Ambassadors provide exemplary customer service and enhance the visitor experience in Georgetown. They will greet visitors, answer questions, provide directions (walking, driving, and public transit), and offer suggestions for culture, recreation, shopping, and dining in Georgetown.

Are you a Georgetown expert? Do you love sharing your insider knowledge of the neighborhood’s hidden gems with friends and strangers alike? If so, please read the position description and fill out the online application form here.
