A Haunted Adventure in Georgetown

Location: 3600 M St., NW Washington, DC 20007
Boo! Mishta here! Have you ever seen the horror movie The Exorcist? Well, we were all in it. Just kidding, but we did go visit the notorious "Exorcist" stairs which are featured in one of the scenes in the movie. The Exorcist is a movie that was produced in 1973, and was adapted from the novel written by William Peter Blatty, who attended Georgetown University. We decided to make a quick stop at these stone steps so we could feature them on our blog. If you've seen the movie, you know what scene I'm talking about - where the priest jumps out of a window and goes tumbling down a steep flight of stairs. Well these are those stairs. Natalie and I walked up the steps, all 75 of them, while Haley watched us hike these steps of doom. The height of the stairs is supposedly equivalent to a 5-story building, and a lot of people use them for a good workout. I can definitely see why because even I felt my quads starting to burn! The "Exorcist" Stairs are the perfect place to to swing by for movie buffs, fans of The Exorcist, and people who want to visit an eerie location from a famous horror movie. The steps connect Prospect Street with M Street below and are located close to the Key Bridge. Beware of ghosts and have a spooktacular time!
