DC folks - travel advice?

    Next Sunday, I am going to DC for a conference. I am flying into BWI and don't know the best and cheapest way to get to DC from there (I need to get to the Capital Hilton). I saw a taxi would be about $80. Can anyone point me to a cheaper alternative? Thanks so much.

    There's a train station on BWI grounds. Pretty sure you can get one to Union Station fairly cheap.

    If you're traveling Monday-Friday, you can take the MARC train (local commuter rail). It will take you to Union Station. From there, you can take Metro or a cab to the Capital Hilton. The MARC train is $6 each way, I think to/from BWI. I'm guessing a cab from Union Station to the Capital Hilton would be about $8-$10. If you're traveling on the weekend, MARC doesn't run. Amtrak's an option. There are shuttles that run to/from BWI to the train station. I think they run continuously around the clock.

    No one would pay for it, to be fair. Assuming this means what I think it means.

    Just don't get married on the 40-minute drive.

    He has assured me it doesn't mean what you think it means.

    So, you won't be wearing a squirrel suit?

    Pro tip: Next time you're going to D.C., don't fly to Baltimore.

    Baltimore-Washington International Airport is often the cheapest option.

    I gotta believe the cost of getting to and from the city is going to be cheaper than the extra $100+ it would have cost to fly into DC.
