Hi,

I'm travelling for business purposes to Herndon; it値l be the second time I知 travelling over there.

The first time I stayed at a hotel in Arlington so I could go easily to Herdon by car for working and tame the subway to downtown D.C. at night for dinner, visiting the city or having a drink.

This time I知 thinking to get a hotel in Downtown D.C. I致e found one near to the White House. I知 wondering how messy will be to leave D.C. in the mornings and come back there at night? It seems traffic at rush hours could be really painful.

I was also thinking about staying this time at Reston, close to workplace. But I do not know what kind of things to do at night (nice bar, live music, sport bar, other) I壇 find. It will imply not going to D.C. I guess because of traffic jam at night, right?

Do you guys have any tip?

Thanks in advance

There is enough in the way of bars and restaurants in the Reston area. That's where I'd stay. Although traffic is reverse from your stay it still will not be easy. You'll still hit heavy traffic in places.

Do you mean Arlington or Reston ?

My last time from Arlington to Herndon it took my around 30 - 35 mins, and in the way back (Herdon to Arlington) it was more like 45 min.

There's ALWAYS traffic in the area, even between Reston and Herndon - as Bigfoot said, there'll be enough to entertain you in Reston and/or Herndon (I assume you'll only be in the area for a few days?) - There's also a Northern Virginia forum (instead of this general Virginia one) - where you might get more opinions.
