Dupont Circle is easy to reach by bus line or the Metro. However, those that live in the area often prefer to walk or ride a bike. The Dupont Circle fountain is the centerpiece of this neighborhood, and you’ll find that locals enjoy going there to people-watch, read, relax, and soak up the sun. Don’t be surprised if there is a yoga class, farmers market, and other fun events going on throughout the year.
You can go from art gallery to art gallery on First Friday Dupont, as well as visit the Phillips Collection (which is the first museum of modern art in the USA). The locals are friendly, and it won’t take long for you to feel at home when you move to this part of the city.
