The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Pretend Politics Don’t Exist in D.C.


4. Insider’s Tip

TheknowitExpress travels to U Street, a hub for shops, restaurants, art galleries, and music venues.  

The best way to get to Washington is by skipping airports, Amtrak, and sketchy Chinatown buses altogether. Book a round-trip ticket ($45) on TheknowitExpress, a new independent bus line that offers weekend service from Brooklyn’s Atlantic Terminal to D.C.’s trendy U Street. In addition to location, savvy young travelers also ride for on-board amenities like bike storage, free Wi-Fi, and a laptop that passengers can borrow throughout the trip.
