Weekend transit options in the greater D.C. area

We need to be in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, January 21. That's the day after the presidential inauguration, so hotel rates are ridiculous and parking will be nonexistent. People who know D.C. transit: Where in the greater D.C. area can we get an affordable hotel room and catch a train or shuttle into the city on a Saturday? [more inside]

Nature retreat, for individuals, within 3-4 hours of DC

I would like to spend a long weekend or perhaps full week, in mid to late October, alone or semi-alone in nature. An individual retreat that involves yoga, hiking, meditation and contemplation (and maybe even homesteading activities), but is not overly "woo" or religious, sounds ideal to me. Where can I do this within a (maximum) 3-4 hour drive of DC? [more inside]

Where should we stay in Washington DC?

I'm looking for a hotel in DC that is within walking distance of some cool attractions for a visit in May. I'd like something reasonably nice, but I'd prefer to stay below $400 a night. The ones I've found so far that look good to me are Kimpton Hotel Monaco, Hotel Lombardy, or the Mandarin Oriental (a little out of my range, but I'm flexible if it's considered awesome for the price. Any Mefites know the DC hotel scene intimately?

Traveling alone to DC on Christmas weekend. What to do?

So I have a few days off and just want to get away on a small budget.

I don't have any friends or family in the DC area and, so far, I couldn't find anyone to travel with me, so I will be traveling alone. [more inside]
