Dupont Circle is a neighborhood where residents come to stay and night owls come to explore.
Located within the “Old City” of Washington, DC, the heart of this Northwest DC neighborhood is a traffic circle designed by architect Pierre Charles L’Enfant in the late 1800’s. Today, locals congregate around a large marble fountain in the center of the circle, relaxing on a park bench, listening to live music or challenging a friend to a game of chess. Arrive via Metro at the center of the circle and branch out to stroll along streets lined with rowhouses in the Queen Anne and Richarsonian Romanesque revival style and apartments for rent. More lively streets are home to numerous embassies, prestigious research institutions, private art galleries and unique shops. Come on a Sunday with your reusable bags in tow for one of the best farmer’s markets around.
