We will be staying in Gerorgetown for 4 nights in September, what bus or metro would we need to get to take us to the obvious attractions? Thanks VTB
There's no metro in Georgetown as it's somewhat isolated from the rest of the city if you look at the map. But it also doesn't have many hotels so it's highly likely that you are actually staying in Foggy Bottom or West End which does have a metro station. Use google maps for transit directions, or wmata.com.
Note that your hotel is most likely near the Foggy Bottom Metro Station, and many museums are near the Smithsonian Metro Station. The 30S and 30N buses run on Pennsylvania Avenue and go to the Mall.
Believe it or not: N stands for Naylor Road, S stands for Southern Avenue; they do not have anything to do with North or South.
You need to say exactly what hotel to get good directions.
Hi we are staying in a condo on Olive Street Northwest
For the Mall it's a long-ish (just under a mile) but straightforward walk to the Foggy Bottom metro station where then you can take the train to the Mall or other attractions. Depending on traffic/transfers may be a wash compared to taking the bus.
Thanks guy's that's been very helpful
