How to Get There:
Event Directions:From Maryland suburbs:
Take the Capital Beltway (I-495) to exit 22B (Baltimore Washington Parkway) toward Washington.
Follow the BW Parkway approximately 7 miles to Route 50 West (New York Avenue).
Once on Route 50 get in the left lane. Within two miles you will approach the intersection of Bladensburg Road where only the two left lanes turn onto Bladensburg Road. Make a left onto Bladensburg and go 4 short blocks (about 1/3 mile) to R Street ... there is no traffic signal at R Street. Make a left on R Street and continue 2 blocks to the Arboretum gates.
Park in the lot just inside and to the left of the gates.
If using alternate NY Ave entrance instead of R Street: Follow above directions to approach Bladensburg Road. Immediately before the intersection there is a U-turn lane on Route 50 with a sign saying "National Arboretum -warehouse entrance". Make this U-turn back onto eastbound Route 50 and then immediately get to the right for the dedicated lane saying "service road". Proceed a short distance and turn right into the Arboretum at the NY Ave entrance gate. Once inside, proceed about half a mile following sign for "Administration and Visitor Services" to reach the parking lot.
