What’s the Best Way to Get Around?
Metro: This is Washington, DC’s subway system. It’s clean, safe, inexpensive and reliable. Most area attractions are near Metro stations. This should be your primary means of getting around. After signing up for tour tickets, you will receive an easy to read Metro user guide and map from Mr. Miller’s office.
Walking: Washington, DC has a great public transportation system but be prepared to walk…a lot! Some museums are as large as a city block. And some attractions may be a few blocks from a Metro station.
Taxi: When a location you want to visit may be too far to walk to, the city has plenty of taxicabs driving around waiting to be hailed. The price of a taxi trip is regulated by the city so don’t worry about being cheated.
Driving in the City: Don’t do it! (If you can avoid it.) Parking is extremely limited, roads can be very confusing (like six way intersections) and traffic can be a nightmare (think downtown LA plus motorcades and protestors). If driving, pay for private parking. If you park on the street, read all street sign restrictions carefully. The city issues one ticket every nine seconds all day everyday and has a fleet of tow trucks waiting for you to slip up.
Tour Buses: There are several tour companies that offer inexpensive driving tours of the city—usually aboard a bus-like vehicle. Some will even let you get off and on at different sites at no additional charge. Pricing, availability and ticketing can be done at Union Station.
From the Airport: Washington, DC is serviced by three airports. Reagan National Airport (DCA) is Metro and taxi accessible and is about five miles from downtown. Dulles International Airport (IAD) is about 27 miles from downtown. It’s serviced by taxi and Super Shuttle. Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) is about 33 miles from downtown and is serviced by taxi, Super Shuttle, Amtrak and Maryland’s MARC trains (although the last two modes require a free bus ride to a train station—not very convenient).
Amtrak and Commuter Trains: Trains to Virginia, Maryland, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston and other destinations depart daily from Union Station.
