Exploring Georgetown's Secret Gardens in Washington, DC
You'd never guess that tucked into the tiny, crowded streets of Georgetown there lies 16 acres of gardens and beautifully landscaped grounds. Dumbarton Oaks is an oasis of flowers, trees and wide open spaces in one of the most cramped and congested areas in Washington. You can spend literally hours getting lost under the shady willows, resting in the peaceful terraces, and admiring the expansive rose garden. There's so much nature to explore that you may not even make it inside the historic home turned museum.
