Travel and Tourism Information
Washington DC is not only the nation's capitol and home of the U.S. government, but also one of the most lively and culturally diverse cities in the country. Scores of museums, memorials, performance centers and galleries make it one of the most visited places in the country. The following links describe a few of the local attractions.
Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) is located about 7 miles from the conference and hotel. Taxi fare to the hotel is approximately $12. The airport is also served by the Metrorail (subway.) Several local shuttle services also offer ground transportation to area hotels.
Dulles International Airport (IAD) is located in Virginia, about 35 miles from the conference and hotel. Taxi fare to the hotel is approximately $40. Several shuttle services also offer less expensive transportation between Washington and Dulles.
Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) is located in Maryland, about 50 miles from the conference and hotel. Airport shuttle services are available to carry passengers to the Washington area for about $30 one way.
Union Station is located in northeast Washington. In addition to local train service to Maryland and Virginia, Union Station is home of Washington's Amtrak rail station. The Amtrak system connects several east coast cities including Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and Washington with several trains per day. Taxi fare from Union Station to the hotel is approximately $7. The airport is also served by the Metrorail (subway.)
The Washington Metrorail system offers one of the easiest ways to get around the city. The metro station which is closest to the conference is Foggy Bottom, which is several blocks away from the hotel. From the station, walk north one block to the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave. and 24th St.. Take the #30 bus that is headed towards either "Tenleytown" or "Friendship Heights". Do not take the "Georgetown" bus, because it will not take you far enough.
