Dupont Circle is easy fun, day or night. It takes its name from the traffic circle minipark, where Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut avenues collide.
Washington’s famous Embassy Row centers on Dupont Circle and refers to the parade of grand embassy mansions lining Massachusetts Avenue and its side streets.
The streets extending out from the circle are lively. They include all-night bookstores, delicious restaurants, incredible art galleries and art museums. Dupont Circle is also the hub of D.C.’s LBGT community.
