from the hotel to the venue

the North Bethesda Marriott location is conveniently located just a few miles from the venue. transportation from one to the other is not provided, so we suggest that you take an Uber or Lyft.

 

pricing on a Sunday night should be about $15 dollars for a normal ride and about $20 dollars for an Uber XL. Lyft is usually slightly cheaper.

another option is to take public transit, but doing so would require about 20 minutes of walking.

transportation

transit is mostly based on the public transportation network, private ride sharing apps, and rental scooters and bikes. of course, your legs are also a viable option. 

as mentioned above, it is suggested that you use a ride sharing application (such as uber or lyft) or a private transportation method (such as a taxi) to get from the hotel to the venue.

for transportation to areas not directly related to the ceremony, check out the two links to the right.

capital bikeshare is a great application for short bike rentals (trips less than half an hour) with dozens of racks throughout the area -- click the logo below
