The brick-lined sidewalks in The Circle are a central part of life in Georgetown, and both residents and visitors rely on the shopping and dining opportunities afforded there. The town is brimming with quaint shops, and has become a destination for antique and other specialty shoppers. A host of shops, restaurants and services are conveniently located, and offer a wide array of one-of-a-kind treasures and dining choices. The offerings continue to expand as the town grows.
