Things to Do

Dupont Circle is one of D.C.’s liveliest neighborhoods, so there is always something to mark on your calendar. Art lovers can spend hours browsing America’s first museum of modern art, the Phillips Collection. On date night, head to the subterranean DC Improv Comedy Club for a laugh, or spend a peaceful evening on the Spanish Steps in Decatur Terrace. If you want to spend some time in the sun, Dupont Circle’s titular traffic circle is home to a park that boasts chess boards, plenty of green space for playing or picnicking, and the beautiful Dupont Circle Fountain. Take a stroll down Embassy Row, where foreign embassies have moved into historic row houses that previously belonged to the capitol’s wealthiest residents. The FRESHFARM Dupont Circle Market has been a Dupont Circle staple since 1997, bringing artisanal goods and fresh produce to the area on Sunday mornings.
