Hi everyone - we would be grateful for some advice, please. Apologies if this is a bit complicated.
We're just planning details for a "trip of a lifetime" holiday and I'm stuck on this next step:
We will be dropping off a rental RV at the Cruise America depot in Manassas on a Monday in mid November. We will have quite a lot of luggage, because we will have arrived in the USA 2 weeks earlier off a cruise ship. 3 suitcases and our carry-on bags.
We need to get to Washington, DC where we have rented an apartment for a few days before we fly back home to England.
I'm trying to find the most convenient / economical way to get from the CA depot to our apartment (which is near Union Metro Station). We won't be in a rush because we have to drop off the RV early in the morning and we can't get into our apartment until 3pm.
Cruise America don't offer a transfer (I'm told) so I'm wondering whether it would be practical to get a cab to Dulles airport and then use the Metro from there. I've never been to Washington, so am not familiar with the Metro system. Would it be a direct journey to Capitol station? I imagine that it wouldn't be practical to use public transport (if any exists) to get to the airport..
I had thought that as we have spare time, we could have lunch at the airport before travelling into town.
Or are there any better options?
Thank you for any advice.
