Dupont Circle is cosmopolitan neighborhood that offers up a little something for everyone. An array of unique shops and lively restaurants along Connecticut Avenue, one of the busiest streets in the neighborhood, is exciting enough to keep you going all day.
Art-lovers can gallery hop around for First Friday Dupont or experience America’s first museum of modern art, The Phillips Collection. Globally minded folks should trek down Embassy Row, which starts on Massachusetts Avenue and cuts right through the circle.
Dupont's dining spots radiate outward from the central circle and include a diverse mix of marquee restaurants, casual bistros, brunch hot spots and late-night dining options.
A can't-miss activity in the neighborhood is joining the throngs of locals on Sundays who visit the year-round Dupont Circle farmers’ market (one of our favorite farmers’ markets in the District) in front of the Metro station entrance on Q and 20th streets. Credit – Washington.org
