Getting Around

Getting around the suberbs of Nothern Virginia, like most cities, requires a car. If you are staying in Washington DC and using the metro system, you can take a taxi from the Whiele (Silver) or Vienna (Orange) metro stations to the Sacred Threads venue. The ride is approximately 10-20 minutes. UBER is also a good option out in the suberbs. Both UBER and LYFT are available in Washington DC.

Attractions:

There are lots of wonderful things to do in Northen Virginia like visiting the Air and Space Museum, the Lorton Workshouse Arts Center, Sully Plantation and the Textile Musuem. So you can stay near the Sacred Threads venue, see the sights around the area and take the metro in to DC for a day of sightseeing.
