Guide to

Logan Circle

What it's like

A funky, GLBT-friendly neighborhood, Logan Circle is the city’s only remaining all-residential circle. Late 19th-century Victorian rowhouses (many of them now converted condos) are the centerpiece of the neighborhood with a cadre of interior design shops, unique boutiques and hipster haven restaurants radiating outward. A tight-knit group of residents take pride in their neighborhood—and it’s not uncommon to see locals relishing in their beloved circle on weekends, walking their dogs, picnicking or even playing bocce ball.
