Vacations to Sterling start in the nation's capital, landing at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). This puts you in the center of some of the countries most visited tourist attractions, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Smithsonian Museum. Historic D.C. is just about 30 miles to the east. You can also head right for hotels in Sterling, since they are only 5.8 miles away. Landing at Dulles is always an experience, since this busy international airport lands up to 2,000 flights each day. The modern concourse opens the doors to everything Virginia and Washington D.C. have to offer.
Convenient flights to Sterling put you very close to your hotel when getting off the plane, so the first thing you will need to do is line up transportation. The options are endless with everything from Metro lines to shared-ride van services. The addition of the Silver Line Express Bus makes taking the Metro easier than ever. The bus runs right to the rail service. You can also catch a cab as there are plenty lined up outside the main terminal near doors 2 and 6. This is also the place to grab a shared-ride van service if you don't mind making multiple stops. If you're picking up a rental, you can complete the transaction right at the airport, then hop on a complimentary shuttle heading to the pickup lot.
Don't waste time trying to track down transportation when you could be out exploring local attractions like the Heritage Farm Museum, just 6.9 miles from the airport.
