Washington DC Metro

Jump to last reply

We're staying close to the White House (Google maps lists it as a 7 minute walk).

The Blue Line of the Metro seems to go almost everywhere of interest from the Farragut West station (3 minute walk). Arlington, center of the Mall to the Capitol.

If we're brave we can even take the Blue Line to Reagan Airport (DCA) when we leave (is this a matter of being brave?).

The problem is that every time I read the Metro instructions there are so many options that it's quite confusing.

The only thing I can somehow make out is that the Senior rate is mostly half price.

What's a Paper Farecard, Smartrip card, etc.

Essentially we'll be in Washington for 3 days. Most of our time will be spent between Arlington on one end and the Library of Congress on the other end.

We may go to Georgetown or Alexandria (we haven't looked into this yet) but that's only time permitting and probably not of great importance.

If it makes a difference, we'll be there the very start of June.

On a related topic. I looked at various maps and it appears we can get to Arlington Cemetary using the Blue Metro line. Is that Metro station really walkable into the cemetery and then around to the places of interest?.

Then, what's it like to walk across the bridge (or is there a bus to do that if we decide) and work our way along the Mall?

Thanks.


Thanks.
