Ricky traveled to Washington, DC and New York in two days. He has some tips just for YOU!

Have questions about Washington, DC and New York?  Ricky has the answers!  He recently flew into Reagan and “trained” it to New York.

Landing at Reagan (DCA) how do you get to the Grand Hyatt, a convention hotel ½ mile from the White House?   From Reagan, take the Blue Line for $2.10 and walk 1 block OR pay about $20 for a cab. I recommend paying the $20!  Washington is beautiful and the inside of the subway tunnel is dark!
Where can the business traveler exercise while in Washington?
I run The National Mall! The view is beautiful and it is free!

Any good restaurants?   Bibiana is a good choice, small portions but GREAT!

Any suggestions on getting to New York from DC?   Take a cab ($10) to Union Station…..Really easy!  It is a 3 hour ride with power and internet for your laptop, you can work the whole way. No issues with Security.  Walk up and get on!

What if there are no cabs available at Penn Station?   Wait in the cab line! It clears quickly OR you can head towards 9th Ave and away the crowds. Yes, even if you are going to 5th Ave!

Stay tuned!  Ricky reviews a few business hotels next!
