Travel and Getting Around

Getting to DC

As the nation’s capital, Washington DC is a big, crowded city. There are many ways to get there, but parking can be limited and expensive. Washington is served by three major airports. In addition, Amtrak trains link DC to most major cities in the US, and is particularly convenient along the eastern seaboard.

By Air: Three airports serve the Washington, DC area: Dulles International (IAD), Reagan National (DCA), and Thurgood Marshall Baltimore Washington International (BWI); all have a variety of ground transportation options to get downtown. There will be no WCNA shuttle service between the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and Washington DC area airports, but there are plenty of transportation options available. There are no airfare discounts being offered in connection with WCNA 38.

By Train: Amtrak trains link DC to most major cities and is particularly convenient up and down the eastern seaboard. Amtrak serves DC's Union Station, which is connected to the DC Metro on the Red Line.

Traveling within DC

DC has a Metro system of trains and buses that directly serve the Walter Washington Convention Center and make it easy to navigate within the city. If you are driving, you may want to consider parking near a suburban Metro station or at DCA airport.

Transportation and Parking

On Foot: DC is one of the most walkable and bikeable cities in the nation. Bikeshares are located all over town. If you’re staying nearby, strolling or pedaling will get you here soon enough!

By Car: Multiple parking garages are located around the Convention Center with hourly and daily rates.

By Metro: The Convention Center sits atop the Mt. Vernon Square/7th Street-Convention Center station served by Metro's Green and Yellow lines. Alternatively, take the Red Line to the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro station, which is a 5-minute walk from the Convention Center.
