DCA Walk Challenge
Launching on April 2, 2015 through August 31, 2015, the #DCAWalk Challenge is a great way to experience Crystal City’s walkability firsthand. From Crystal Drive, Terminal A and Terminal B/C are both less than a mile away. That takes about 10-15 minutes and 20-25 minutes to walk, respectively. The challenge is open to anyone - not just those taking a flight, so people can give it a try and post the experience to social media with the hashtag #DCAWalk via Instagram (@CCBID), Twitter (@CCBID), or Facebook. Submissions may include a hyperlapse of the walk, a mini-documentary, pictures of the scenic views, fun selfies, a special Pinterest board, a blog post, or countless other ideas. Most importantly, travelers are asked to have fun and be creative! Monthly standouts will win a weekend getaway from a participating Crystal City hotel. Crystal City is the largest hotel district in Arlington, VA with over 20 hotels and 5,200+ rooms.
