ShermansTravel experts map out your travel route to get you to your vacation spot as quickly and easily as possible. We painstakingly research the airports and airlines servicing your destination – as well as any train, bus, or ferry options – so getting there is as simple as a jaunt across town.

Getting to Washington D.C.


The capital is served by three major airports - Ronald Reagan National (DCA) (the most convenient), Washington Dulles International (IAD), and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI). Dulles, 25 miles outside D.C., is less convenient. BWI serves many discount airlines, including Southwest.


Washington is served by multiple daily flights from virtually every prominent foreign and domestic airline. Delta and U.S. Airways offer shuttle routes from NYC and discount airlines like AirTran, Independence Air Southwest, Spirit, and Ted Airlines also fly here.
