JUST TRIPPIN' to D.C.-Presidential Inauguration for MLK Weekend

Imagine standing on the grounds of the National Mall witnessing the swearing in of our nation’s president. The POTUS! What a story you'll have to tell. Well....you don't have to imagine anymore. Let's make this a reality.

Let's commit to trip to D.C.!

Our Florida Chapter is excited about this trip and can't wait to meet our new Atlanta members.

Total Cost per Person is $850 which Includes:

Round trip air from Atlanta, GA

3 Night Hotel Stay at Aloft Washington National Harbor (double occupancy)

Roundtrip Transfer from Airport to Hotel

Welcome to D.C. Cocktail Party

Tour of Washington D.C.

Land Only Price is $575 and includes:

3 Night Hotel Stay at Aloft Washington National Harbor (double occupancy)

Welcome to D.C. Cocktail Party

Tour of Washington D.C.

So here's the answer to the question of the day. What if my candidate does not win?!?!?! Don't despair, it's still the long weekend (MLK Birthday) and we're in D.C.! There so much to see and do that you couldn't possibly be disappointed.
We’ll fly into Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and stay in Oxon Hill, Maryland. This is a quick commute into the city using public transportation. Due to larger than normal crowds the commute will exceed the standard 15 minutes…but who cares about that when you’re having the time of your lives?!?!
The hotel will be a 4 star Starwood property in Oxon Hill, MD. Ultra cool and with all the comforts of home. Close to some great shopping areas, eateries, and nightlife.

There is space for 20 Trippers and this is firm. First to commit will trip.

  • Rue

    Listen Everyone...if you are interested in going...please do not wait until tomorrows deadline to pay your deposit. We were able to secure incredible rates because we were pro active. Now the hotel is selling for double the rack room rates and are looking to take back any unused rooms from us. I don't want that to happen. I'm stalling but I need your help (lol) I can only stall for so long.

  • Rue

    Some people who haven't RSVP'd yet have expressed an interest in going, but the number of days may pose a problem. Don't forget that Monday is a national holiday, so you'll only have to take 1 day off of work.
