GETTING TO DC
There are three major airports in the Washington, DC region: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI). All three offer multiple U.S. and international flights daily.

To catch a taxi, look for the official taxi stand outside of baggage claim. A ride into downtown DC will cost about $15-$20.

BWI Airport is accessible via an Amtrak train route that drops off at DC’s Union Station. A reserved seat on the train will cost $15-$30. Visit the BWI Airport ground transportation page for more information.
