VISIT WASHINGTON DC FROM NEW YORK
At a distance of "only", so to speak, 226 miles (363km) we have the farthest city of the three and probably the most visited one as well --Washington DC capital of the United States
. The importance of Washington is certainly linked to the presence of the President of the United States in the White House and the site of the US Federal Government, aka Capitol Hill
, along with all the historic Memorials
dedicated to former Presidents and all of those who fought in Wars during the last 2 centuries. Arlington Cemetery
and the lively Georgetown
neighborhood are also not to be missed to get a comprehensive tour of the city.
Let's see how we can plan our stay in NYC to have one or more days available to visit the capital from New York City and choosing between train and bus. The train can be more expensive however knowing how to choose the cheapest and most convenient fare ahead of time is certainly the least stressful way to reach the capital, especially if done as a 1-day gateway. All trains leave from Penn Station
(34th Street & 8th Ave.) Trip duration and cost vary from the choice of the train and the time of departure, the morning trains, the best choice so you will have the entire day available to explore DC with a return ride planned for the same evening are clearly the most expensive. The fast trains (Acela Express - trip duration 2:58 h) can cost you from $ 150 to $ 400 round-trip depending on the dates/hours selected and sometimes even more, but there are also the Regional Trains (Northeast Regional - trip duration 3:30h) from $80 to $ 300 round-trip also depending on the time/date.
