Dupont Circle Fountain (Samuel Francis Du Pont Memorial Fountain)

Fountain, Plaza, Park
in Dupont Circle Park
Washington, DC 20036


  • Best people watching place in the city!
  • Perfect lunch place for people watching!
  • For those times you want to be surrounded by hundreds of gigantic rats
  • Excellent people watching. Also. Very thoughtful to bring fresh fruit for the homeless, they really appreciate it.
  • While it's a fun place to sit and people watch, you really do have to watch out for the rats and be ready to dodge them after sunset.
  • Designed by Chester French, Henry Bacon and George A. Fuller.
  • A truly beautiful fountain and some of the best people watching in the district.
  • Great place to relax with a book coffee or chill with a friend. Btw Starbucks has a public bathroom without a code.
