Find Your Way Around Washington Airport

Washington, D.C. is home to culture, cuisine, and of course the nation’s capital. There’s no better place to get an up-close look at the legislature’s inner workings than in D.C., but don’t sacrifice points on your itinerary by traveling via public transportation. Instead, see the sights on your own time with a cheap Reagan airport car rental.

Arriving in D.C. & Car Pick-Up

When you fly into Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), head for the first level of Parking Garage A. This is either a 10-minute walk from the terminals, or a quick ride on the Parking/Rental Car shuttle; these shuttles stop outside baggage claim at both terminals every few minutes. If you’re renting a car from an off-airport agency, you may need to make other arrangements to reach it.

Out & About in Washington, D.C.

There’s much to do in D.C., so steer your DCA rental car about 4 miles northeast of the airport to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Spend hours roaming through the air and spacecraft kept in this giant collection, and learn about the history and future of flight. Of course, you can’t visit D.C. without a walk past the White House or the United States Capitol, where you can see the government at work.
Your DCA airport car rental can take you outside city limits, too. Just over 4 miles south of the airport is Alexandria, VA. Explore its charming Old Town area, including a stop at Gadsby’s Tavern and the Carlyle House. Alternatively, head about 40 miles north to Baltimore, MD and tour that city’s many attractions. Visit Fort McHenry, or explore the offerings at the National Aquarium.

Leaving D.C.

When you’re ready to depart, return your car rental to the first level of Parking Garage A. You can either walk or take the shuttle back to the airport’s three terminals; please note if you have rented from an off-site company, you’ll need to make other arrangements to get to the airport. DCA serves over a dozen airlines, among them JetBlue and US Airways, and over 20 million passengers walk through its halls each year.
As you relax before your flight, why not enjoy DCA’s Gallery Walk? Situated in Terminal A, this series of rotating exhibits is dedicated to various types of art, including photography and paintings. Additional artwork is stationed in Terminals B and C, and occasionally live performers grace the airport with their talent. Should you just wish to kick back with a newspaper or magazine, or enjoy a sandwich from the deli, you’ll find that as well.
