I parked all day at a station in Virginia on the orange line. I think it was free because it was a weekend but there may be a fee during the week for commuters.

Thanks for your reply.
I don't mind paying a small fee on weekdays , but is it possible to park overnight and if yes is there a way to pay for the whole week ?
thanks everyone for tips

you can park at park&ride lots in Montgomery County, MD or Herndon, VA, you then would have to take a bus to Metro to Washington DC

On weekends, you can also park for free at many metro stations, (e.g. Shady Grove in MD and Vienna in VA) visit www.wmata.com for additional information

The only place I would feel comfortable about leaving the car for a week would be at the airport and you would definitely pay for that. Or possibly at a hotel they might have parking but I don't know if they would allow it if you weren't staying there. There are occasional commuter parking lots on the outskirts but I would not want to leave a car there long term.

Why not rent a car to drive to D.C. and when you get there, turn it in to the rental car place?

Where are you planning to stay? Why not stay at motel that has free parking? Even if you're not staying at a motel, possibly you could arrange with a motel to parking your car there or a small charge. Of course, they may say "for insurance reasons......." I tried.

Re: free parking in Washington DC

by jethanand

you could also opt for renting a car under the flexi-car or zip car plans, you would have to reserve a car for yourself in advance, pick up the car from designated parking spaces and return the car to the same spot, (though I was not terribly impressed when I tried them out)

Re: free parking in Washington DC

I checked the metrorail web site as suggested and overnight parking is allowed in Huntington , franconia-springfield, and Greenbelt in multiday spot ( 15 to 17 ) , 4.5$ a day is a good deal compared to my hotel ( 30$).
Thank you all for tips and info .

Re: free parking in Washington DC

You know, last two time I was in DC (in March and November 09), we found free parking on the Mall after only driving around a couple of times. And it was a Sunday. I wouldn't recommend leaving your car unattended even for 24 hours since it might be broken into or towed. But you're staying in a hotel, right? So why not leave a car at the hotel parking lot.

Did you not read that the hotel costs $30/day. NOT FREE

Travel Tips for Washington D.C.

So much to do!

by aimeewoods

The museums in the Mall area (aka downtown DC) usually change two or three of their exhibits each month so there's always something new to see. The greatest thing is that most of the places you visit are free!
Aside from seeing the national monuments, I highly suggest visiting the National Zoo (free admission) and the Holocaust Museum. With the Holocaust Museum, I advise you get tickets ahead of time via the internet: http://www.ushmm.org/ or by telephone ($2 convenience fee) since they often run out of tickets by 10am.
Another fantastic site is the National Aquarium in Baltimore. The admission price used to be $13; however, I'm sure it's gone up in the past 5 years. You can often find discount tickets around the city.
Finally, the Cherry Blossom Festival in March is the next best thing to actually seeing it in Japan.

Cherry Blossoms in the Spring

by Bwana_Brown

If you can time your visit correctly, you should try to get to Washington when the cherry trees are in full blossom! We really enjoyed the colour and sense of spring that they provided! The beautiful warm weather and the cherry blossoms!

Go to the mall. It is the...

by DanielF

Go to the mall. It is the obvious place for tourists to meet. It is an overwhelming place because of the grandeur and majesty of the buildings, but there are also cool corners like the contemporary sculpture Garden in front of the National Archives building. The severe classical lines of the buildings on the Mall give to this place a great feeling of solemnity.

Almost all the important sites...

by tim123

Almost all the important sites to see in Washington D.C. are located along the National Mall. The mall is a long tree-lined park about 300 feet across and about a mile long. Along the sides are the national museums (nine in all, tenth coming soon), important government buildings, war memorials (to the Korean, and Vietnam Wars). In the middle in the Washington Monument, the White House to the north, and the Jefferson Memorial to the south. On the two ends are the Lincoln Memorial and the U.S. Capitol Building. My favorite part of Washington are the cherry blossoms which come out in March and April. They frame everything in beautiful hues of pink, white and red. It's an amazing sight to see!

Thank you, China!

by Confucius

One of the best things about living in the Washington DC area is being near all of the embassies. I was invited to many embassy functions and attended some parties uninvited.
The best parties I went to were held by China, Japan, Brazil, France, Indonesia, Italy, Thailand, and Ukraine. It is no coincidence that all of these countries, with the exception of Ukraine, happen to be included in my list of favorite foods. (Ukraine's party had pretty women, but the food was forgettable.) Of course China is my favorite embassy and I made so many good friends there. If you live in Washington DC or are planning a special visit, then keep in mind the dates of Chinese New Year because every year there's a big party at the China embassy.
You will definitely want to be on the invitation list for this one. The chefs from China cook a large buffet that always includes several of those special dishes that cost twenty bucks each on the menus of fancy Chinese restaurants in Georgetown or Dupont Circle.
There are also games with prizes and you can take home gifts like sandalwood fans and Chinese handicrafts.
So if you want to be on the exclusive short list of non-Chinese guests, it's best to make a friend or two at the Chinese embassy and hope they remember you when those Chinese New Year party invitations go in the mail.
Great fun!
