Encompassing 170 acres of prime real estate in Washington, D.C., Dupont Circle is one of the most famous historic districts and neighborhoods in the nation’s capital. The Dupont Circle neighborhood stretches from 16 Street NW in the east to 22nd Street NW in the west to M Street NW in the south to Florida Avenue NW to the north. Conveniently located along the Washington Metro Red Line at the Dupont Circle Metro Station, it is easy to see why Dupont Circle apartments are so sought after.
Considered by many to be D.C.’s trendiest and hippest neighborhood, Dupont Circle is home to a number of nightclubs, cafes, shops, art galleries, and bars. Residents rave about the easy access they have to fun and exciting things throughout the week. For example, the vast majority of art galleries in the area participate in the First Friday of the Month program where visitors can view beautiful pieces of art while enjoying conversation, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres.
When it comes to food, it is hard to find a better area in D.C. for delicious cuisine that runs the gamut from extremely expensive to affordable on any budget. For the best meal in the capital go to The Palm where Washington’s most important power figures go to dine in privacy and style. Finish off any meal with a visit to Mr. Yogato’s yogurt shop. In addition to homemade frozen yogurt, patrons are invited to play the Nintendo game system for the chance to get discounted or free yogurt based on their score.
Although Dupont Circle is a bit of a walk from many of the more popular Smithsonian museums, this area is still home to a number of cultural landmarks. Take a stroll along Embassy Row to see where many of the foreign dignitaries and ambassadors make their residence while in the city. Other activities include the Woodrow Wilson house where the former president lived after leaving office and the hidden wonders of the Spanish Steps.
The Dupont Circle apartments available from Equity put residents directly in the heart of this vibrant and exciting community. Just steps from delicious eateries and within walking distance of great shopping, Dupont Circle has the feel of a larger city, but is really just a small neighborhood.
