Hi folks, Is it possible to find transportation to the Potomac Mills Mall Outlet? Like maybe a day trip or bus transportation. Thank you. :-)
How good is the museum and exhibits? Is it worth the trip out there?
Has anybody done this? How long does it take and how strenuous is it? We'll be there late April and strongly considering doing it.
Hi, My family will be visiting Washington DC and staying either in DC or in Arlington by the Metro next month. We will be using the Metro to get around during our visit. My concern and question is what areas should we avoid and what areas are safe to visit and choose to stay in at a hotel? Thanks in advance for any information you can share!
Does anyone know of a site where I can search for a short term rental property for an upcoming 4-7 day visit to DC? We will be traveling in April.

Hi and Thanks Any thought as to Boat tours, Dinner tours etc? John
Thanks to all for your replies (two day trip-first timers). I have incorporated many of your suggestions, and I can't wait for our trip. What a great forum!
In two weeks I be joining my husband who will be on a business trip, for two days of site seeing. I am thinking I will go to the Museum of Natural History on Friday, spending most of the day there. My husband will join me in the late afternoon, and I hope to walk the Mall (or take the shuttle) and see the WWII memorial and the monuments. On Saturday, we plan to see the Zoo, maybe see Union Station or catch another museum, then take in an evening cruise. My husband and I are in our mid-fifties, and not particularly fit, speaking mostly for myself. Am I overly ambitious, especially on that first day? Are there decent, relatively inexpensive places to eat, i.e., food carts along the Mall?
Can anyone suggest the best Crystal City hotel for a small group--looking at$, breakfast, parking, internet, swimming, gym, etc.
HELLO VT'ERS, DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. WE CAN TAKE THE PUBLIC BUS TO VIRGINIA BEACH? WOULD YOU KNOW HOW MANY HOURS IT TAKES FROM WASH. TO VIRGINIA BEACH AND THE COSTS? MANY THANKS TO YOU ALL. GREETINGS.
Hi Guys I am seeking a good area for accommodation for 4 adults in Washington. My daughters like the look of Dupont circle. But what other areas are good? We are interested in everything!! Food is good too!! We will be there at the end of September for 4 days and won't have a car. We will be flying in from Orlando and then training to New York at the end of the stay.
Hi there. I know about the Capitol Share bikes on the racks, by the hour, but I'm looking for a by the day, or overnight, bike rental in DC. Can you offer some guidance? Thanks for your help.
We will be flying in to BWI and get in about midnight. I am wondering what is the best way to get to DC. Should we spend the night in Baltimore and rent a car in the morning? Can I return a car at Union Station? Are there other reliable and safes ways to get from Baltimore airport to DC? We also want to go to Gettysburg and Mount Vernon - so we will most likely need to rent a car for a day or two. Any advice on how to travel to these areas as well as to/from the BWI airport would be much appreciated! Thanks!
Hi I'm thinking of renting a condo at this location is it a good area?? 425 mass ave nw near mt Vernon triangle Thanks a lot John
We will be arriving in DC (DCA) at 11:00am on Friday, April 13th and staying at the Fairfield Inn on New York Ave. NE. They don't offer airport shuttles. My plan is to take a cab to the hotel(there will be 3 of us) and then utilize the Metro for the rest of the visit. They do offer a free shuttle to Union Station. Our return flight is out of IAD. What is the best way to get there from our hotel? Our flight is at noon on the 16th. About how long will it take us to get from Union Station to the Mall area?
Hi Going to Washington in Sept want recomendations on Hotels right in the middle of the tourist areas. Don't want to use metro if possible. Resonable and safe. Thanks John
We will be making a quick trip to DC, April 13-16, with 2 boys age 13 and 10. The younger one is Deaf and Type 1 diabetic. Both are bright, curious and can't wait to see the nation's capital. On our list of musts: Arlington National Cemetary, Museum of Natural History, a look at all the monuments/White House, and a Civil War battle ground. We would also like to do a quick stop at Gallaudet U. for the little one. We have a contact there and are staying not too far away, so I'm hoping to squeeze that in Sunday night. We arrive Friday morning, so will have 3 full days for fun. I'm excited about seeing the Cherry Blossom parade, but feel like that wouldn't be the best day to see the museum or monuments because of the crowd. Would planning to see the museum on Friday, the cemetary Saturday (after the parade) and then maybe a Battle field and the monuments (maybe on a hop on/off tour bus) Sunday be doable? Would a battle field be accessible without a car? Could we squeeze a trip to the zoo for the younger one while the older one goes to the Holocaust Museum or is that too ambitious? Maybe the Eastern market for Breakfast on Sunday? Any suggestions for the guys would be great. I've been a few times buy on my own or with adults. They love guns, knives and all things war. As long as we can keep the little one fed, we will be gold! if we have to take out anything, the parade will go!
I have a 10 hour layover at Dulles near Washington DC. I am under the impression that the airline will not allow me to check my bags through. What can I do with my bags if I want to get out of the airport and do some sightseeing? Read more: VT Forum temporarily unavailable
