We are driving up from East TN and are staying in an AirBNB (on Clay Place NE) in SE DC. We will utilize the Metro and the Circulator. We will be there from 6/13 - 6/19.
Question 1 - Coming in from SE DC we have an 8:15 White House Tour. What time should we leave the AirBNB?? We are closest to the Benning Road Station (from what I can tell on the map). Should we do Metro ONLY or do a Metro/Bus combo? Or the Circulator?
Question 2 - If we are eating lunch at We the Pizza (305 Pennslyvania) and we need to get to the Supreme Court by 12, can we walk and make it?
Question 3 - FBI Tour at 10:30 in the a.m. on Friday. What time again should we leave the Air BNB?
Question 4 - Same as above, except it is a 11:30 Capitol tour on Sat.
Question 5 - If we are over at the National Zoo and I have booked a 3 pm trolley tour thing at Arlington, what time would we need to head out to get to Arlington?
Question 6 - It appears that what we need to do (family of 4 w/ 2 teens) need to purchase a BASIC metro pass at at around $2 a person and just add cash to it when we need it? We plan on using the circulator when getting around the National Mall as well.
Thanks for being patient with me! We do not have any kind of mass transit really here in East TN (city buses, but we live in the county) so this is all new to me. I have ridden the Metro in San Diego and it was okay. That is what freaks me out a little - rush hour, making to wherever we are going on time, etc...
