As one of the trendiest neighborhood in Washington DC, Dupont Circle is home to many bars, cafes, night clubs, shops and art galleries. However, although there are many modern places that have now popped up all over the neighborhood, there are still many historic architecture for mini bus rental visitors to see while at Dupont Circle.

Some of the most impressive places for sightseeing, both modern and archaic are:

  • The Brewmaster’s Castle
  • The Phillips Collection
  • Woodrow Wilson House

The Brewmaster’s Castle

This building stands out, as you will notice when you are at New Hampshire Avenue. As one of the most intact Victorian houses in the country, the Brewmaster’s Castle, also known as the Heurich House Museum, was built with poured concrete and reinforced steel by local German brewer and philanthropist Christian Heurich.

It was a place of fashion and wealth, it now still contains most of its original furnishings and decorations. Although built in the Victorian era, it has astonishing technology incorporated, such as full indoor plumbing, circulating hot water heat, central vacuum system, venting skylight, elevator shaft, pneumatic and electric communication systems, and combination gas and electric lighting fixtures.

The Phillips Collection

Fancy some art? Head over to the Phillips Collection art museum that features more than 2,500 works by American and European impressionist and modern artists. As America’s first museum of modern art, this museum has works from many famous artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Gustave Courbet, El Greco, Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Pierre Bonnard, Paul Klee, Arthur Dove, Winslow Homer, James McNeill Whistler, Jacob Lawrence, Augustus Vincent Tack, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Mark Rothko.

Woodrow Wilson House

Previously the home of 28th President of United States, Woodrow Wilson, this house is now operating as a museum and is a National Historic Landmark. Rental bus visitors visit this house for a glimpse into the private life of Woodrow Wilson and his legacy as an educator, president and world statesman.

Situated in Kalorama, this home was built in a Georgia Revival style and is sympathetic in design. The house has been maintained very well as how it was in 1924, including furniture, art, photographs, state gifts, and the personal effects of President and Mrs. Wilson.
