I was quite disappointed when I saw that the Fountain did not have water during my visit. There were also many homeless men occupying the benches surrounding this Fountain. I quickly took some pictures and hurriedly left!

In winter the fountain is drained - so essentially it is a 'nothing special foundation without water'. If you happen to be passing Du Post Circle look up, otherwise you're not missing much at all!

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.
