Why rent a car in Washington, DC?
You could spend weeks visiting Washington DC's hallowed monuments, lush parks and tree-lined neighborhoods and barely scratch the surface. Grand it may be, but compact it is not. While the metro is best for downtown, you'll want a car to explore remote corners of the capital and the countryside beyond.
Where to go in Washington, DC
See the National Mall, the Capitol and the White House on foot. Afterwards, hop in the car and head up to Washington National Cathedral, a grand Gothic-style church looming northwest of the center. Drive over to Rock Creek Park for a hike through DC's wild side – coyotes still roam here – then stop in the stunning formal gardens of Dumbarton Oaks. A 20-minute drive south of the capital takes you to Mount Vernon, the sprawling and much-loved estate of George Washington. On the way back to town, stop in colonial Alexandria. Its brick streets and 18th-century townhomes now host art galleries, boutiques and restaurants.
Getting around Washington, DC
Navigating Washington's numbered and lettered streets is fairly straightforward, though the many traffic circles and diagonal streets (like Pennsylvania Ave) can lead unsuspecting drivers on lengthy detours. Street parking is difficult downtown. It's easier to garage the vehicle during the day when visiting the key sights.
Washington, DC car rental locations
All the major rental agencies can be found at the two Washington, DC area airports – Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) – as well as at locations around town.
