      Erin-- I usually take the MARC train from BWI to Union Station. There is a free shuttle from the airport to the train and the ticket is $6. I've never had any problems with the commuter rail and definitely prefer it to the bus.

      It’s a huge facility with a variety of fish like no other aquarium. It’s also located at the harbor which allows for great views of the water and the surrounding area.

      I always took the BWI Express/B30 service ($6 one way) to Greenbelt Station which connects to Union Station. :)

      is gorgeous with vaulted ceilings and ornate stonework. Aside from the transportation perks, there are a number of good restaurants and shops in the old train station as well.

      Union Station is the main hub for Amtrak trains in DC and also houses a major Metro hub. Once here, you can get easily to almost anywhere in the city.

      After decades of preferring Reagan or Dulles, this airport is now really growing on me. Easy to navigate and some truly fantastic dining options. Still more convenient to Baltimore than to DC, but a ... read more

      Hi Erin,

      I've done this a few times, but in reverse. Although the Metro gets close, Amtrak is really the way to go as it will get you pretty much to the airport. The problem is that Amtrak trains are less frequent than the Metro, which runs every couple minutes. So, you'll want to check schedules in advance.

      Amtrak is the easiest if the times work for you, otherwise there is a bus you can take to the metro and then metro into DC
