Passengers love flying into the Reagan National airport as they are treated to views of the famed monuments on the way in, and often find shorter security lines on the way out. Since this is a smaller airport you won’t find a plethora of restaurants, but there are a few gems including some that are well-worth patronizing for travelers who may be facing a long layover or delay. Choose from juicy burgers to sushi and fabulous hot ‘n spicy Mexican fare.
If you’re looking for great local gifts, you’ll find several shops with patriotic and politically themed products as well as jewelry and other popular items. If you have a lot of time, the airport also has an art program that includes floor medallions, murals, sculptures, stained glass and more.
