Travel By Air
- Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA / Arlington, VA) – This is by far the closest and most convenient airport to fly into for the event. It is serviced by American, United, Virgin America, Delta, Alaska, Frontier, Southwest, jetBlue, and Sun Country airlines. It is also connected to the Blue and Yellow lines of the Washington Metro (subway) system, making travel around D.C. very convenient.
- Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD / Dulles, VA) – This airport is about 26 miles west of downtown Washington, D.C. and is another possible option. There is a Silver Line Express bus that will get you to the Wiehle-Reston East metrorail station in about 15 minutes. From there, the subway will take you just about anywhere else you may want to go in D.C.
- Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI / Baltimore, MD) – A third option for travel to D.C. This airport is 45 minutes North of Washington and may have less expensive flights than DCA or IAD, but ground transportation will be limited to car, taxi, or Uber.
