Georgetown is a Washington, D.C. neighborhood located in the northern part of the city. While it is only accessible via the Metro system, there are numerous metro stations connected to it. The Lone Wanderer will most likely discover the area via the Tepid sewer, since research for the Wasteland Survival Guide requires the player to enter there.

Background

Georgetown is a historic neighborhood, commercial, and entertainment district located in northwest Washington, D.C., situated along the Potomac River. Founded in 1751 in the Province of Maryland, the port of Georgetown predated the establishment of the state of Maryland by 25 years and the District of Columbia and city of Washington by 39 years. Georgetown remained a separate municipality, in the county of Washington, until 1871, when the United States Congress created a new consolidated government for the whole District of Columbia. A separate act passed in 1895 specifically repealed Georgetown's remaining local ordinances and renamed Georgetown's streets to conform with those in the City of Washington.

Layout

In the south a rather large parking lot with some roaming super mutants. The La Maison Beauregard is located here.

Going north, various ruined office buildings, houses and some stores. The north area has an artificial canal running from the mid-area to the north, going below a right-angled elevated highway, with a large gap just above the canal.

Notable loot

Notes

  • The whole area has an abundance of car wrecks. Being ambushed by super mutants carrying missile launchers can lead to the cars exploding in a chain reaction.
  • The pitching baseball machine trap has a different trigger. When trying to disarm it, the trap will tell you that it is activated somewhere else.
  • The whole Georgetown area is filled with super mutants and centaurs, turning it into a death trap for low-leveled players.

Appearances

Georgetown appears only in Fallout 3.
