Woohoo! You’re attending the 2017 APA Convention in Washington, DC. But before the fun can begin, you have to figure out how to get to Convention and where to stay once you arrive. Thankfully, the APA website has lots of helpful info and this post will help point you in the right direction (there’s also some travel humor for you, BTW).
How do I get there?
- Fly – For those traveling from farther away, flying may be your best option. There are three major airports that serve the Washington area – Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI). Be aware that Reagan is by far the closest airport to the city, so if you fly into the other two be sure to plan your route into the city. Once landed you can take a taxi or shuttle, take local transit, or rent a car to get to your accommodations. The washington.org website outlines the various options for transit and provides rough cost estimates. Use travel search engines, such as flighthub.com or kayak.com, to compare flight options.
