Travel Tips: Street Closures

Drivers to the National Book Festival, be aware! It’s going to be a  busy day in Washington, due to  tight security surrounding the opening of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall.

We’re excited to be sharing the big day with that event, as well as many others — there’s always something going on in D.C.! But the extra security will result in some road closures that may affect your travel to the National Book Festival. The Washington Post has mapped it out for us. So plan ahead!

Here are more tips on getting here and enjoying your day from previous blog posts. See you this Saturday!
