I am in the preliminary stages of planning a trip for 15-20 high school seniors to the inauguration. Most likely arrive late morning on Sunday and leave late afternoon on Monday. I have been looking at outlying areas for hotels, but unsure of what area would be the best, especially with regards to Monday transportation.
We will be traveling by bus and will there be drop off and pick up points near the mall? Or do you suggest public transport near an outlying hotel?
We will most likely have tickets for the inauguration, which I assume means a little closer access to the Capitol--if that makes any difference in where we should arrive and depart near the mall.
I appreciate your assistance.
