Notable for its superior examples of Victorian rowhouses and turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts mansions. Designated June 1977 with nearly 3100 protected buildings within its district boundaries.
A lovely place to get a bite to eat, have a drink, read a book, or catch a train :)
The circle is so gay, you can't even walk straight.
Awesome place to people watch!
Great people watching, grab a cup of coffee, take in a game of chess.

A great central location with many different directions.
A great place to take a stroll anytime of the year. Sip a coffee or snack on something from one of the many surrounding restaurants. I love reading a book on a bench near the fountain. Classic DC.
Set up a blanket in the circle on spring weekend day, text all your friends your location, and take a nap while you wait.
there's always something to entertain you
Good spot drink a cup coffee
Great spot for cruising homeless dudes and shitty artists.
Perhaps DC's best little National Park. Great people watching all year long. I like a veggie burrito from Chipotle up Conn. Best place for the mother of all Snowpocalypse snowball fights 2010!
Best people watching spot during the day, late night, best place to watch drunk people eat the pavement.
As long as you're subtle, cops are ok with bringing booze. Get some friends and some solo cups with wine and go day drinking. It's best in spring.
- escalators NEVER WORK!!!
Soccer in the circle... go usa!

I'm straight and I also enjoy this fountain.

Best people watching spot in the city
Look out for the crazy weird-located roundabout :)
Easy location for a meeting point
If you're feeling French or just obscure, pronounce it "du pawh"

The transportation equivalent of the Mad tea party.

Contrary to popular belief, no longer a true gayborhood. The gays have long since gentrified it and moved elsewhere while yuppies from Arlington have been pouring in for years.
This is the best place for a sunny day!
Fun, fun, fun...perfect for people watching...wannabes, neverweres and hasbeens.
Lots of small cafes, bars and restaurants! Also where you can find the Foundry Gallery, Emerson Prepratory School, etc
Love splashing in the fountain, whether or not I happen to be carrying a briefcase!
