On this walk, learn about the mansions that line the Dupont Circle neighborhood, the place to see and be seen in the early 1900s. Enjoy stories about the heiresses and socialites of their times who hosted the city’s finest parties with the most sought after invitations. Hear tales of spies, art collectors, musicians, a President’s daughter, the Hope Diamond, and the assassination of a foreign diplomat. The circle itself is a tribute to decorated Revolutionary War Admiral Samuel Francis DuPont, and is the social hub of the neighborhood. This area was the center of gay rights activism in the 1960s-1990s, and continues to be one of DC’s best addresses. It traditionally hosts some of the liveliest parades, snowball fights and public events in the city. Current innovations are bringing new life to Dupont Underground, where the trolley cars were stored until 1962, and in what is now an inventive new art space.
Il tuo host
Pierre, Elvis Or Andrea
Andrea, your guide, is the author of “111 Places in Washington That You Must Not Miss,” an off-the-track guidebook for adventuresome visitors, and locals who wish to find new ways to enjoy their own city. She has been in the tourism industry for 31 years, and is a road trip junkie, happy to go anywhere on any day, particularly in the Mid-Atlantic. She is a total contrarian to the notion that “one never plays tourist in one’s own city.” She is spoiled by the fact that Smithsonian museums are free and full of wonder; she knows most of DC by landmarks; and loves to explore its nooks and crannies

The terrain is pretty flat. Be prepared to walk about 2-3 miles. Arrive a few minutes early so you can get yourself a cup of coffee or juice at Shop Made in DC, where everything is locally produced.
