Getting Around Washington DC


When flying into Washington D.C, travelers have a choice of three airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, the closest to the city; Washington Dulles International Airport which offers easy uncongested airport access; and Baltimore–Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, which boasts reduced fares. Each of these three airports offers easy access to Washington D.C, with Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport being the most popular due to its proximity and direct access to the Metro rail system.

Getting Around Washington D.C.

The Washington Metro, the area’s subway system, offers safe and reliable transportation to the most popular attractions in Washington, DC. It is a great way to maneuver the city and it even has service to the nearby suburbs of Virginia and Maryland. Take note that the Metro may be crowded at peak times such as rush hour or during popular downtown events, so plan accordingly.  It is a great alternative to taxis and is much more convenient than trying to find a place to park a car.
