ARRIVING BY AIR

For the Washington Market, Reagan/National is the closest Airport (less than 30 minutes to downtown), however, Dulles is an equally fine choice for arrival by air (less than an hour to downtown).

For the Baltimore/Maryland market, Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) is by far the best choice. It’s 20 minutes to downtown Baltimore, 20 minutes to the Bacchus/Office & Warehouse, and 30 minutes to Annapolis. BWI airport is also convenient if you are working the Washington market, as it’s about a 45-minute drive to downtown DC. However, neither Regan nor Dulles is very convenient if you are working in Baltimore.

For the Wilmington/Delaware market, Philadelphia airport is closest, about 30 minutes to downtown. However, it is North of Wilmington, and therefore further away from both Maryland & Washington, and extremely inconvenient if working those areas.

ARRIVING BY TRAIN - Both Long Distance and Regional

Amtrak trains run frequently between Washington, Baltimore & Wilmington and the other east coast cities of Philadelphia, New York and Boston. They can be a convenient alternative to air travel as they drop you right downtown.

However, if you are traveling between Baltimore and Washington, do not take Amtrak. Rather take the local commuter MARC trains on the Penn Line. These trains run extremely often and are 1/3 the cost of Amtrak. Unfortunately, there are no commuter trains between Baltimore & Wilmington, so Amtrak is the only choice. And there is no good public transportation to Annapolis from anywhere, so a car is a necessity.

ARRIVING BY CAR
It is possible to work the local markets in Wilmington, Baltimore and Washington without the need of a rental car. The sales person, with whom you are working, could meet you at your hotel or at the train station, and you could ride with them in style (well, maybe). You can even be “carless” and work all of these markets in one trip by taking the trains mentioned above between cities. However, if you would like to work in Annapolis or other parts of Maryland or Delaware, it is necessary to have your own car.
CONTACTING OUR STAFF
Before your work date, you should make plans with the sales person/people involved as to where and when you will meet.
