    • Family vacation

      Washington D.C. Jun 30, 2014 at 6:28 PM

      Hi all! I was in Washington D.C back in 1990. I now would like to bring my family that includes a 10 year old and a 14 year old. I realize things are different now and I would like to know a safe, cheap place to stay (obviously outside downtown)that would include being able to access most sites via the metro. We plan on flying in so airport shuttles would be helpful since we don't plan on renting a car. Any other helpful hints would be great. I am hoping to book very soon. Thanks much!

    • Driving to Union Station

      Washington D.C. Jul 17, 2014 at 6:39 AM

      I need to meet someone at Union Station around 1pm on a weekday. I'll be driving from a hotel near Dulles airport. On the map, driving to Union Station looks fairly straightforward along I-66 and Constitution Avenue, and I understand there is parking available at the station. Is driving through the city a mad idea? Would it be better to park at Vienna Metro and ride in on the train?

      In and Around McLean & Washington DC

      Washington D.C. May 11, 2014 at 4:26 AM

      Hi all,
      I'm travelling to the US in August this year, I'm staying with friends in McLean VA. It's my first time visiting and am extremely excited to be visiting the US.
      Nothing in the world of google and it's various apps is even remotely helpful, I would like to know, if it's easy to use the Metro? I mean for someone who has only used the London Underground a handful of times!
      Is it easy to go from McLean to Washington DC?
      What are the neighbouring towns like for entertainment, shopping, sightseeing, or is it worth heading to DC most days?

      I'm not renting a car (haven't planned to at least)and also will have two boys aged under 10years old with me who live in McLean.

      Any information would be helpful on travelling around the area, things that are highly recommended to see, shopping and the people.

      Thank-you in advance.
      Overly cautious, country English girl. X

      GOOD AND MODERATELY PRICED PLACES TO EAT.

      Washington D.C. Apr 19, 2014 at 5:29 PM

      Coming to DC for 5 days in June.
      Big foodies here but are more into local places to sample good traditional regional cooking.
      Doesn't have to be anything fancy, in fact, we prefer it not to be.
      Not touristy but rather somewhere the locals eat.

      Hoping to hear from some people living in the area or who frequent the area often and are familiar with our requisites.

      Thanking all in advance,

      Homer (and Ed).

      Hotels in DC for the VT meet in Oct

      Washington D.C. Jan 31, 2014 at 4:47 AM

      Hey peeps
      I am all excited about DC meet in Oct, so I started making plans.
      Any of you getting ready as well?
      Have a bit of a problem, booking hotels, my usual chain ( frequently used when in USA ) is not available in DC but in Alexandria, Arlington and few satellite towns.
      After the meet I'm planning of two weeks road trip going south, all the way to the Big Easy and back to fly home.
      Now I planned to rent a car on my last day of the meet for the trip.
      Problem I have is that on the meet page there is not proposed area of DC for the meet ( big sprawling city) and I don't know where ( area)to look for hotels if I use my usual chain than I will need car to get places in DC which will be pain parking and extra cost.
      Keep looking on the map and the map look small from this side of the screen, but in effect is totally different story on the ground..
      So do I book on the outskirts or in the DC and if in DC where exactly? What is the safe areas,close to everything and easy accesable by metro.
      Help!!

      Washington and Road Trip

      Washington D.C. Jan 18, 2014 at 3:03 AM

      I am considering doing a trip to washington In September this year, I was initally going to do a trip around New England, but may change this.
      My Plan is Washington DC-Virginia Beach (VI)-Bethany Beach (DE)-Philadelphia-Atlantic City (NJ)-Washington DC
      Is this trip Feasible in 15 days/nights?
      My plan is:-

      Washington 3 nights

      Virginia Beach 3 nights
      Bethany and somewhere else in Delaware 3 Nights
      Philadelphia 2 Nights
      Atlantic City 2 Nights
      Washington 1 night
      This gives me a spare night and I will stop off somewhere between Atlantic City and Washington.
      Would this be a good journey to do? Any suggestions of what I may change?
      Thanks

      Hi
      My wife and I will be arriving in Washington towards the end of June next year for a family wedding on July 4 in the city. We will be staying with friends in Maryland for a couple of days, but would then like to explore perhaps down the Blue Ridge Highway, heading back to DC for July 4. We don't leave till July 9, so is there enough to do in the city between the 5th and the 9th or should we look to get out and see the surrounding area during that time? Sorry for so many questions, but we've not been to this part of the US before! Thanks!
