Pros: Nice, smooth ride - no bouncing. Most comfortable bus seat I've been in. I must've dozed off, because when I woke up, we were over the Bay Bridge! Tips: If you're going to Rehoboth Beach, pack some tote bags, extra sunscreen and bug spray. Between the mosquitoes,...

Pros: Nice, smooth ride - no bouncing. Most comfortable bus seat I've been in. I must've dozed off, because when I woke up, we were over the Bay Bridge! Tips: If you're going to Rehoboth Beach, pack some tote bags, extra sunscreen and bug spray. Between the mosquitoes, spiders and biting flies, my legs are a red, itchy mess!!

Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked that they gave out water because I had forgotten mine. I was also pleased that I could reserve my return trip ticket which I found out I wouldn’t need after I booked it. I plan to take my mom on a short trip on your bus. Cons: According to the website when I booked the trip the time frame was depart DC at 6pm arrive in Rehoboth at 7:45. We didn’t arrive until 9pm. Tips: Good way to travel for short trips. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

City Information

Washington DC

Washington, DC is the capital of the United States, and as such, it offers many points of interest of governmental and historical value. DC is home to several iconic landmarks, including the White House where the U.S. president resides, the Capitol building that houses the meeting chambers of the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the National Mall, where you can stop by the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the World War II Memorial. One of the reasons Washington, DC is among the best destinations to visit with your family is because it is home to so many world-famous museums, including the Smithsonians – 16 museums scattered across the District, most of which are open every day of the week, and even better, every single one is free.

D.C. is not just about politics and museums, though. The city’s active nightlife fittingly ranks it among the biggest party hubs in the country. Head to the vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood to check out some of the finest restaurants that the nation’s capital has to offer, and follow that up with a drink (or two) at one of the many bars in the area.

Nested between Virginia and Maryland, Washington, D.C. is a key transportation hub with three nearby airports and several bus and train stations.
