Washington, D.C., offers plenty of things to see and do, more than you might be able to fit in on a single trip. To make the most of the time you have here, a rental car will help you to get around on your own schedule. You'll want to rent your car at the Ronald Reagan International Airport (DCA). To get a real sense of the city, drive down to the National Mall. This gorgeous National Park begins at the Lincoln Memorial and stretches all the way to the U.S. Capitol Building.
From the airport, you can take Route 1 north to the Smithsonian museums. At the Aeronautical and Space Museum, you’ll be able to see the plane the Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk. On display at another one of the Smithsonian buildings is the famous Hope Diamond. You can visit the iconic White House and the Capitol Building, but remember you’ll need to make arrangements in advance. Book lovers should check out the Library of Congress, perfect for filling a rainy afternoon.
Flights from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), to Washington, D.C., will take almost two hours. Flying into the nation's capital sometimes requires additional security; passengers are not allowed out of their seats for the last 30 minutes into Washington.
