Getting from Dulles to Alexandria, VA?

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I are visiting DC this summer. There is a direct flight into Dulles that looks tempting, but our hotel is in Alexandria. The hotel has a shuttle to/from DCA, but not Dulles. How much of a hassle is it to get from Dulles to Alexandria? It is about 24 miles, so I'm guessing a cab would be pretty expensive. Should we go for the longer itinerary (one stop) and fly into the closer airport, or manage the trip to and from the more distant airport. We are both adults, if that makes a difference.
