The Neighborhood

a hub of cultural diversity

Dupont Circle has been a historically significant part of Washington DC since the 19th century. There is a two-mile stretch of road known as Embassy Row that includes foreign embassy sites. For art lovers, you can stop by The Phillips Collection which claims to be the country’s first modern art museum. Fans of architecture and history will enjoy an opportunity to visit the Spanish Steps or just hang out at Dupont Circle’s famous fountain. 

Whether you’re looking to go shopping in a quirky specialty shop, or in some major retail outlets, Dupont Circle and Downtown D.C. have got you covered. Shopping, music, art, history, and so much more await. Where else could you tour the home of DC’s first brewer, and get lost in the National Geographic Museum all in the same day? Every day can include something different and unique, with the Rocksboro Apartments serving as your home base.

Contact us today to discuss how you can take one step closer to making our nation’s capital your home. At Rocksboro Apartments, you’ll get to live in the apartment of your dreams, while enjoying everything that Dupont Circle and the greater Washington DC area has to offer.
