F2C: Freedom 2 Connect will take place at:
AFI Silver Theater
8633 Colesville Road
Silver Spring, MD 20910
(intersection of Colesville Road & Georgia Avenue)
Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) is the
closest airport to F2C:Freedom to Connect's venue. It reliably
takes about 30 to 40 minutes on the Metro, with one change of
trains. Surface transportation (Taxi and Super Shuttle) are
also available, but times can be slower in rush hour.
Two other airports, Dulles (IAD) and Baltimore-Washington (BWI),
are also practical. They tend to have more nonstop flights from
longer distances, but travel to Silver Spring is more dependent
on surface traffic; especially slow in rush hour. Both IAD and
BWI are about 32 miles from the F2C:Freedom to Connect venue in
Silver Spring. The drive might be 30 minutes or 1:30 depending
on time of day. SuperShuttle and rental cars are available.
There's a Hertz local in Silver Spring two blocks from the venue,
and one-way rentals from BWI and IAD can be practical and
Amtrack from Boston and New York are also quite practical.
It is the best way to get to DC from New York, New Jersey,
Philadelphia, Delaware and Maryland. Trains arrive at
Union Station, a convenient 5-stop Metro ride
to Silver Spring.
The AFI Silver is a short walk from the Silver Spring Metro Station. The Metro Station is six stops from Washington, D.C. Union Station on the Red Line. For an Interactive Map of Washington Metro Click Here
