Advocacy Day 2013 Travel Information

Make sure you have all the information you need to make your stay in Washington, DC, the best possible!

Traveling to DC
Training will begin early on the morning of Monday, June 17th, so you should plan to arrive in Washington, DC, on Sunday, June 16th.

Returning Home
We ask that you book your return flight for 6:30 pm or later if you are flying out of Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA), or 7:30 pm or later if you are flying out of Dulles International Airport (IAD) or Baltimore Washington Airport (BWI). In-person meetings with members of Congress are more likely to be scheduled late in the afternoon on Tuesdays, given the congressional schedule. These meetings are the reason that you are coming to DC, so it is important that you plan to stay long enough to attend!

Getting to the hotel
Cabs from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to the Capital Hilton will cost approximately $20 one way (plus tip), and the trip will take from 20 to 30 minutes, depending upon traffic.

A Metro stop is located at the airport as well. To get to the hotel, take the BLUE LINE train labeled LARGO TOWN CENTER eight stops and exit MCPHERSON SQUARE METRO STATION. The ride will cost $3.05 during non-rush hour times and on weekends and $3.60 during rush hour, and will take about 15 minutes plus a 5-minute walk to the hotel.

For information on traveling to the hotel from the other area airports, please visit the hotel’s website.

Getting to Capitol Hill
On Tuesday morning (June 18th), all Advocacy Day participants will meet at the Capital Hilton Hotel for a send-off breakfast during which last minute meeting schedule changes and other critical information will be provided. After breakfast, we will provide prepaid Metro farecards valid for one round-trip journey from the McPherson Square Metro Stop (near the Capital Hilton) to Capitol Hill, and back to the hotel. Please note that due to security restrictions on Capitol Hill, you should plan to leave your luggage at the hotel. Once you are done with your meetings in the afternoon, you can use the same Metro farecard to get back to the hotel.
