Getting to the Eastern Market

We will be staying in Arlington and will be near the Metro Station.

I would like to start at the Eastern Market for a little while then go to Fords Theater. Which metro stop should we get off at from Arlington and which one do we take to go to Ford's Theater?

There are several Metro stations in Arlington, but no matter. More important: when on Metro station escalators (assuming they are working, of course), stand on the right, walk on the left, especially at rush hour. it's a pet peeve about tourists by locals rushing to work. Rave about Eastern Market? I guess some do. Trip planner on www.wmata.com is good. Google Maps also has an optin for public tansportation (bus icon).

Going from Eastern Market to Ford's Theater, Wmata.com shows taking the Orange or Blue Line to Metro Center and walking .2 mi. from there. If going directly from, say, the Crystal City Metro station, it suggests the Yellow Line to the Archives station. Your hotel will also be likely to help you.
