My son (11) and I are traveling from Denver to NYC, and then taking the train to DC. We will be downtown from 3/30 afternoon until 4/3. We are flying out of BWI late in the evening on 4/3.
What is our best option to get from DC to BWI? I was thinking the MARC train/Penn line. Seems to leave every hour and only costs $6. If we stay in DC, then we can keep our bags at the hotel until we are ready to leave. I have things we can do in DC.
Another option would be to go to the Baltimore National Aquarium. Leave earlier on 4/3.. hang out by the aquarium and the wharf in Baltimore, until we leave...
So..things I'm considering, for the aquarium:
-I heard there was construction at the aquarium. Might not be worth going.
-I think we can take the same MARC train to get close to the aquarium, and then a taxi or something... (any ideas on a better way?). Aquarium personnel that I called didn't know.
-Where would store our bags near the aquarium? Does the aquarium itself have any storage?
-I don't want to get to the aquarium too early, because we need to be at the airport around 7pm. Not sure of a good time to get there.
