Most of you know this about me, but I actually grew up in the D.C. suburbs. In a town full of transplants, most people automatically ask where you’re from, cause not a lot of people are “from” D.C. I am one exception to the rule; I left for college and then came right on back. Blame the amazing job market here, ok?
Anyway, when I was in high school, I loved going to Georgetown. However, I didn’t love driving from my sleepy suburban town to Georgetown. The thought of driving anywhere in D.C. as a teenager really freaked me out. Actually, it still kind of freaks me out at the age of 26, but that’s another story for another time.
Solution? We parked our cars across the river in good ol’ Rosslyn, and took the D.C. Circulator across the bridge. It was fast, easy, and incredibly affordable: $1 per ride. When you compare it to driving into Georgetown, paying lord knows what for a parking garage, and stressing out over M Street traffic, it was clearly the best option!
9 years later, I’m still zipping around town on the Circulator. It’s incredibly reliable, it comes every 10 minutes, and it services every part of town I need to visit to get my holiday shopping done this season: Georgetown, Penn Quarter and Dupont Circle, I’m looking at you! When you compare it to other public transit options and driving, you really cannot beat a $2 round trip ride!
I took the Circulator over to CityCenterDC last week to do some holiday shopping, a quick blog photoshoot, and to grab some ramen at Momofuku, of course! I have a quick holiday challenge for my D.C. folks: try the Circulator this season for all of your holiday shopping! Trust me, you (and your wallet!) won’t regret it!
