Getting Around Dupont Circle

Around Dupont Circle

Dupont Circle has a large selection of homes that appeal and attract many new residents as well as first-time homebuyers. Much of the housing consists of semi-detached Victorian-style row houses, a style that is consistent throughout many of the northwestern D.C. communities. A search in any direction off of Connecticut Avenue will expose the homes and neighborhoods you may want to call your own.

You like food and so does Dupont Circle. This neighborhood offers many ways to challenge you on the food you like while providing you cuisines from all over the world. There are restaurants serving Indian, Middle Eastern, French, South American, and Italian cuisines as well as pizza and gourmet hamburgers. You can choose to have a sit-down meal in a fine dining restaurant or pick up the pace with a grab-and-go sandwich as you make your way to your next stop.

The central vantage point of the community is the fountain, known officially as the Rear Admiral Samuel Francis Dupont Memorial Fountain. Constructed in 1921, the fountain replaced a statue of the neighborhood's namesake, ‎Samuel Francis Du Pont. The fountain is constructed out of marble with a concrete base and has a footprint that measures 11 ½ feet. In addition to the famed fountain feature, visitors to Dupont Circle will be able to see the Argentina Embassy, located at 100 New Hampshire Avenue NW. The architecture of the embassy is symbolic of many of the fine homes in the Dupont Circle neighborhood.

Dupont Circle has many entertainment offerings available to appeal to all of your senses. Start your Friday adventures off right by heading toward the southern entrance to the Dupont Circle red line Metrorail station. On any typical Sunday evening, you will hear the sounds of a local brass band or other artists warming up the crowd and putting you in the mood for what's to come. From there, you can go to the clubs on M Street off of Connecticut Avenue or relax in a casual atmosphere at the various indoor beer gardens.

There are so many sidewalk cafes and spots available to you for your Sunday enjoyment that it would be difficult to choose just one. Whatever your pleasure, whether it be a bar that offers make-your-own Bloody Marys or a more typical brunch, there is something for everyone to find for that easy Sunday morning atmosphere. You can also head straight to the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, located off of Massachusetts and Connecticut Avenues. There you will find a large selection of locally grown produce, artisanal baked goods, and other offerings from local farmers and producers. It is one of the most popular Sunday morning hangouts in Washington, D.C.
