DC area and surroundings

Jump to last reply

I have a wedding in Fairfax, Virginia on a summer Saturday. Due to airfare issues, I'm thinking of taking the red-eye. I'd get in super early Friday morning to BWI and leave again Sunday night from BWI.

Does it make sense to stay Friday night in Baltimore to do some sight-seeing .... maybe the Walters and Harbor area? I could seemingly easily take the light rail in from BWI.

Then, how on earth do I relatively cheaply get from Baltimore to Fairfax Saturday morning and again Sunday? Do I take the train into DC then metro to Fairfax station then cab?

Or maybe I just screw it all and stay both nights in Fairfax with nothing to do or schlep up to DC. My Fairfax hotel is obviously pretty cheap.
