If you are flying from Austin, there is now a daily non-stop flight on Southwest to DCA (Reagan National). This would be your best option as DCA is right in Arlington.

If you do fly to BWI, you have several options--all of which are described on the BWI website or one of the Top Questions from the Washington, D.C. forum:



The "easiest" option would be a taxi or driving a rental car, but this would also be the most expensive. Be aware that the traffic between BWI and D.C. (and Arlington) can either be a breeze or a real PIA.)

The least expensive option would be public transportation--either a train to Union Station and then Metro to Ballston or a bus to the Greenbelt Metro station and Metro to Ballston. Those options would take the most time.

Then, in between, is the Super Shuttle.
