Getting Around Washington Dc

It is very easy to see most of Washington DC on foot as attractions are grouped closely together. Driving can be maddening - chaos rules during rush hour and parking is prohibitive. Though there are some free parking lots, getting space is a nightmare.

A better option is to use the city's public transport system -the Washington Metropolitan Area transit Authority that runs Metrorail and Metrobus services in the city as well as to suburbs in Virginia and Maryland. Pick up a Metro Tourist Pass for greater convenience. Taxis are available and charge you by the zone -check total fare before you set out
