Logan Circle is to D.C.’s circles what Baby Bear’s porridge, bed, and chair were to Goldilocks: just right. Unlike Thomas Circle, it’s got benches aplenty. Unlike Dupont Circle, it’s shady and quiet enough to read for an hour or two. And unlike Grant Circle, enough individuals pass through Logan Circle on a regular basis to provide for consistently entertaining people-watching. The next time you need a respite from the chaos of 14th Street, as well as plentiful opportunities to pet the many four-legged residents who pass through every hour, you know where to head.
