Dupont Circle — None/10 Rating (based on 26 neighborhood reviews)
I chose to move to Dupont because it is so close to my graduate school classes. It turns out, it is very centrally located and has great access to many different popular neighborhoods in DC. I have easy access to the red, orange, blue, and silver lines; plus, the Circulator makes it easy to get around too. There are certainly plenty of bars and restaurants in the area, several grocery stores nearby, and lots of options for exercise.

There are lots of great restaurants in the area and the area is also very safe. There is a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's pretty nearby, but nothing that you can just run to quickly if you need an ingredient or two. Lots of CVS and Starbucks locations right around, though. And, very close to Metro red line.

The Flats at Dupont Circle
Everything at your disposal, heart and culture of the city, and very close to the up and coming hip areas of logan, shaw and the rest. Dupont is safe and established, but it can get loud at times on the weekends, and it could use a better grocery store nearby.

Dupont has pretty much everything you could need, although you might pay a larger price for it. It can be a little bit of a walk to the closest grocery stores, but there is a wide variety of options for stores, restaurants, and shops. The community is great and very friendly.

Dupont Circle is a great and vibrant, clean location. I definitely feel safe, even late at night, but the noise level can get very bad, especially on the weekends.

Clean, friendly, convenient. It is a bit out of the way from the new restaurants and scene of DC developing in Logan Circle and east. Most people are moving over there, bike share makes all locations easily accesible though.

St. George Condos
Best neighborhood in DC. Not super close to Georgetown's campus (you'll need to take the GUTS bus to get to campus--about 20 minutes each way), but if you want to get out of the Georgetown bubble and experience authentic DC living, this is the spot.

If you're a young person, this is the neighbor hood for you. Walking distance to Adams Morgan, Georgetown just to name a few. Always something to do, and the bars are so much fun. Great food too, you can always find brunch.

South of the circle shuts down on the weekends. It's a ghost town of high rise office buildings devoid of any character that makes DC such a loveable city.
The M street and Connecticut Avenue bars are close however, it's a very specific crowd of people and not the place to go if you have an aversion to sticky floors and drunk coeds. In terms of every day errands: there are plenty of CVS type stories in the general vicinity however be prepared to walk at minimum a mile to get groceries. On a nice day it's no big deal but on a rainy day you're going to wish there was a closer option. The Dupont Farmer's Market is a lovely respite from the corporate bustle on the weekends and you can't beat the location in terms of convenience for getting around the city. It's walking distance to everything and a great launching off point if you want to get out of the city for the day.

Traffic and sirens can make it a noisy place, especially if your unit faces a major street. Walkability to campus, public transit, the mall, social areas, and businesses make it a prime location though. Mixture of GW students, Gtown students, and working professionals make up the primary population in the area if I had to estimate. I feel very safe here.

Close to work, metro, restaurants and bars. There isn't a nearby grocery store but you are less than a mile away from a Whole Foods, Trader Joes and a smaller safeway. The restaurants aren't that great but there are lots of options.

I don't think I could live anywhere else in DC. I live at the North side of Dupont Circle. I am blocks from 3 grocery stores, gyms, dry cleaners, and the metro. I also can easily walk to school or take a very quick bus. There are tons of restaurant and bar options in the neighborhood as well. The best thing about the North end of Dupont is it is a little quieter and more residential than the south side but you can very easily access the busier parts if you want. I also am a female that is living alone and have never felt unsafe.
