For guests coming from the Northeast corridor: The best and most comfortable way to get to Washington, D.C. is to take an Amtrak train to Union Station, which is very close to both the venue and many of the hotels we've blocked. As a more affordable alternative, a number of bus companies, including MegaBus and Bolt Bus, also offer routes from various spots on the East Coast to Union Station.
For guests traveling by plane: The closest airport to the festivities is Washington Reagan National Airport. The Washington metro area is also served by Dulles International Airport, which is about a 45 minute drive (traffic permitting) to the venue. In addition, guests can fly into Baltimore Washington International Airport, which is about a 40 minute drive from the venue. Guests flying into BWI can also take a MARC train (Maryland's commuter train service) or Amtrak from BWI to Union Station.
For getting around while you're in town: If you're not driving a car to D.C., you can easily sightsee and travel to all of the wedding events via Metro, Uber, Lyft, and traditional taxi.
