Hi everyone,

My fiancee and I are looking to buy a home in DC. We just bid on a condo in Dupont Circle/Adams Morgan corridor, right around 18th St & S NW, right across from Lauriol Plaza. We love the place but I am a bit worried about my commute to Tyson's. Any route recommendations for the morning as well as evening commute? Also from a timing perspective, what are the hours that I should avoid? My work is pretty flexible, so I can go late, and leave late (or vice versa), and can spend more time at work by working out at the office gym. How much time do you think my daily commute is going to require?

Right now I'm commuting from Rosslyn, so pretty much know the picture on the VA side of the bridge. All I need is to figure out how to get to the bridge and go across it really. After the bridge my commute is pretty much 10 to 30 mins (one way) depending on the traffic and the route I choose. On average I think I spend 40-45 mins for the round trip.

Thank you so much in advance,

I'd probably try R st to 22nd (or is it 23rd) and go to P st. Turn right and get on Rock Creek Parkway. Left at Virginia ave and left again on to ramp to the Potomac freeway (I think that's it name) and take that to 66. If you're solo driver then exit on the Virginia side and make your way from there. (you state that you know how to get to Tysons from there.)
