My wife and I walked past this enormous fountain in the middle of Dupont Circle. It was extremely ornate and was a nice monument. This area makes a nice place to visit as it is quieter than other areas of Washington and has some great restaurants.

It is one of many fountain in D.C. that is operating and working during summer time. A nice structure in the middle of the circle. The fountain's formal name is the Rear Admiral Samuel Francis DuPont Memorial Fountain has 3 carved with allegorical sculptures round the base. According to the information, it is one of the 18 fountains registered as historic places in the country. During summer, visitors can come and enjoy the fountain and watch chess games.

Dupont Circle is not particularly quiet with all the traffic around, but it’s pretty. It’s a green oasis. I was there this morning and took some photos and noticed that lots were in the benches reading the paper or a book. It was serene with the buzz of traffic.

It's the fountain in the center of the circle with a small park and benches all around. Not the best fountain in DC, but you will see it as you are sure to come to this essential neighborhood.

The fountain is attractive but the scene around it is the very interesting. People from all walks of life sit on the fountain’s edge. Some people just sit and think while others eat their lunch.
