Washington, D.C. is one of the most vibrant cities in the world that attracts those on family vacation, business or sightseeing. Flying from Denver International Airport (DEN) to Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) will transport you to the nation’s capital, and plenty of attractions.
Take the Metrorail from the airport to the city (less than five miles away); the Metrorail runs to most points of interest in D.C. plus into Maryland and Virginia communities. There are also ample airport and hotel shuttles available, or you could opt to rent your own car from agencies at DCA.
With your Metrorail map or car keys in hand, head for The Smithsonian Institution; plan to be there for the day as it’s mammoth and worth considerable time. Of great interest there is the awe-inspiring National Air and Space Museum.
There are 19 museums to explore, located on the National Mall. An organized day tour of Mt. Vernon and Arlington National Cemetery includes The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Iwo Jima Memorial. Segwaying around D.C. is fun, as is visiting the monuments and plentiful bars like Soussi, as well as restaurants such as Zaytinya, which are found in the area.
Once your Denver flight takes off, expect to be in the nation's capital in about three and a half hours, and then get exploring. From trendy Georgetown to the Kennedy Center and the Potomac River, there is no city quite like Washington, D.C.
