You can also enjoy self-guided tours of Georgetown’s famous red poppies, a tradition that dates back to World War I, when a young local soldier sent home poppy seeds from Flanders Fields in Belgium. Though these flowers no longer grow in the wild, many Georgetown residents and businesses lovingly cultivate these striking flowers year after year.
