Ten Tips To Visiting Washington, DC

1. Plan Your Trip

Washington, DC can be overwhelming with so many places to visit and things to do in the city.  The best way to have a fun and enjoyable trip is to plan specific places to visit prior to arriving in the city.

2. Visit During The Right Time Of The Year

What may appear to be the wrong time of year for most…may be the best time of year to visit for you if economics are a consideration.  There can be significant savings on hotels and travel during the winter and late summer. 

3. Save Money | Fly In To Baltimore

Check all of the area airports for the best savings on your flights.  You may find that flying into Baltimore (BWI Marshall Airport) sometimes can result in significant savings on your airfare over direct flights to Washington.  Upon arrival at the airport take the shuttle to the train terminal. The airport has free and regular shuttles to the train terminal. The trip to Washington, DC’s Union Station is only around 35 minutes.  Check the price…but recently, it was around $7 one way on MARC.

4. Use The Local Train From Baltimore

The local MARC Train will take you to Union Station in Washington, DC from the Baltimore train terminal and save you money.

5. Stay Close To The Monuments If Possible

If you are following a plan…that may include staying at a hotel close to the sites you are visiting.  This will save you time, money and sore feet

6. Wear Comfortable Walking Shoes

This is no joke…don’t regret leaving your comfortable walking shoes at home.  A relaxing and beautiful vacation can become an instant nightmare when your feet and back are aching.  Unless you are used to walking or running several miles a day, the stress of visiting several monuments and museums over a couple of days can be extremely uncomfortable in the improper clothing (especially footwear).

7. Visit The Monuments In The Early Morning

Avoid the heavy crowds and experience the beauty of the early morning sun rising over one of the monuments.  The morning may be the ideal time to visit your favorite monument for the serenity that will come with the quietness of the beginning of the day and smaller crowds.

8. Consider Ride Share, Street Buses Or The Metro

Parking at hotel garages can be $40 or more per night.  That doesn’t include the added expenses of street or temporary parking at sites.  Ride share companies, street buses and the Metro can add significant savings to your trip.   Finding locations while driving can often be cumbersome and add loss of time to your trip.  Remember, time is your friend when visiting Washington, you want to save as much as possible for actual tourism…not travel.

9. Prepare For Security Checks At Museums

Pack light when visiting museums…remember this is the 21st Century and you are in the capitol of the United States.  Expect security checks upon entering tourist sites.  Prepare by packing only the essentials in an easily accessible form…and be prepared to wait.

10. Watch Congress Live

Remember, you are visiting the heart of government in the worlds most political city.  Why not witness laws being made and debating in person.  Plan appropriately.
