    Dupont Circle is a very lively part of the district. When I am getting off at this station, I know I am in for good food or drinks at one of the many great establishments within walking distance.

    make sure you know what direction you are heading in advance before you leave the station. It makes a big difference in walking around the circle if you pick the right exit from the start.

    On the DC Metro's Red Line. Has 2 entrances--north (Q St.) and south (19th St.). The south entrance has an incredibly long escalator, but you can read a great Walt Whitman quote along the way!

  • Amanda F.
    Don't stand one stair away from someone on the escalator unless you're family or dating. Otherwise, you're in my personal space, especially if you have the world's giantest bag!

    In 2007, a portion of Walt Whitman's 1865 poem The Wound Dresser was inscribed into the granite wall around the north entrance escalators.

    Hit the Dupont Farmers Market on Sundays, right by the entrance. The best place to get fresh peaches & the croissants are delish!
    Denise Dutton · June 19, 2011
  • Nehanda L.
    Best place to disembark! Lots of places to eat as you get off the escalator. Love this area!
    Nehanda Lindsey · April 12, 2013
  • Annie G.
    Take the time to read the quote around the entrance as you go up or down the long escalator
    Annie Gillman · March 6, 2013

    If any tip doesn't say "Stand to the right while riding the escalator," or "Don't eat while riding Metro," ignore it.

    Exiting the station during rush hour is a gamble. Losing such a gamble means you get to have a pretty serious short-burst cardio work out
    Nathan Tidd · January 10, 2014
  • Kerry T.
    Escalators are kind of steep and long. Hand rail and escalator are not perfectly synced which is kind of trippy!
    Kerry Tan · March 30, 2013

    Smart trip is now WAY slow ever since they upgraded the software to charge more during rush hour

    The DC Metro system is awful, unreliable and expensive. It is a source of shame for the nation.

    Escalators: right side is for walking left side is for standing...when they're operating of course.
    Michael Powell · December 3, 2011

    1 of the oldest & least climate-controlled stations. Dress accordingly.

    People in DC are flat out retarded and can't follow simple rules.. Especially on the metro.

    The southern exit has one of the longest escalators around!

    Don't walk up the stairs unless you want a calf workout.

    Avoid like the plague on weekends - no ac and always single tracking.

    Stop at Krispy Kreme before going down that wicked escalator. The wait might be a long one.

    Watch out. The late night metro attendant doubles as Cunty McCunterson on fridays.
