“no free benches at night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

just like pretty much everywhere in DC, most benches are occupied by homeless people at night. if i were homeless, i'd probably do the same, it's not their fault.. i would just welcome it if the city tried to do a bit more for them, it doesn't make DC look good, when visitors can't sit on a bench at night, after exiting a restaurant, club etc

“Great night life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

If you want to calm down in the nice calm park and got enough from history ,military and american ulture, take a break here and just look at the people. Open trip advisor on ipad and serach for good restaurants and bars, there are plenty around :):)..Take a choice for evening and enjoy the night in DC:)

“The heart of hopping DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

The circle is a nice place to eat, or to party, or just to sit around and have a picnic. The area has just about anything you might need, B&Bs, restaurants, bars, art galleries.
