The only reason that I can think to go here is for lunch at one of the 10-20 food trucks that line two sides of the square. Most options are priced between $9 and $12 at any of them. Ate there three times last week,...More

A welcome contrast to the bustle of K street, and a soothing bit of nature to ease the morning commute, as well as a solemn memorial to a true patriot and hero, Admiral David (“Damn the torpedoes, full spent ahead!”) Farragut.

Travelled to Farragut West metro station as the tour bus has a stop next to the square - metro exit is right opposite. Square is named after “the first admiral of the navy” (never heard of him) and the only inscription on his statue in...More

Nothing special about it except the statue in the middle of the square. A lot of coffees and restaurants available on all sides.

Farragut Square is an area with a statue dedicated to admiral Farragut. You can enjoy some green area that is usually surrounded by food trucks, and read the plaque to learn the history of this man.

Very close to White House. Right next to Farragut West Metro Station. Good place to relax, have a meal and take a picture

I visited the Farragut Square a couple of times, though at first it was simply a coincidence that it happened to border on my transit point for switching metro lines and catching the bus. I found it interesting and relaxing to detour my walks around...More

In my eyes at least, this is one of those "Forgotten Memorials" : Farragut was the very first Admiral of the U.S. Navy, and served with great distinction - to the degree that he is remembered, at least some people will refer to that apocryphal...More

This block-square park with a memorial of Farragut in the center is a convenient place to rest and snack. Accessible by two Metro stations--blue and yellow lines on the south-side; red-line on the north--there are benches in the park; during the week there are mobile...More
