Washington, D.C., United States

Dupont Circle is a trendy historic neighborhood in Washington D.C. It is popular due to its night clubs, bars, cafes, art galleries, and shops.

Pierre Charles L'Enfant's original plan for Washington, D.C. included a number of grand boulevards, radiating out and intersecting with one another in a way that would create public squares and green space. One such circle, Dupont Circle, lies at the intersection of Connecticut Ave, which emanates from the White House and runs roughly north-south, New Hampshire Ave, which runs diagonally, and Massachusetts Ave which runs roughly east-west.
