Don't Let the Traffic Grinch Steal Your Holiday Shopping Cheer!
Don't Let the Traffic Grinch Steal Your Holiday Shopping Cheer!

Ahhh….the holiday season is upon us again, replete with its many joys: rosy-cheeked, smiling children, twinkling lights, the smell of baking cookies, the opportunity to dress your dog like a reindeer and tell all your friends that “he really likes it.” But it also carries just a wee bit of stress. There’s the baking of said cookies, hanging the pretty lights, travel plans, menus, and, of course, shopping. Lots and lots of shopping.

Which brings us around to goDCgo's predictably favorite question: how do you plan to get there? Here's a hint: don't drive! As we get closer to Christmas, the traffic around the area’s most popular shopping destinations will increase, and nothing promises to drain you of holiday cheer as certainly as sitting in traffic. And it’s not just any old traffic. No, it’s the “must-get-to-mall-before-the-person-next-to-me-who-is-trying-to-merge” variety in deadly combination with the “II-will-definitely-get-there-faster-if-I-block-this-intersection” type of traffic. And then there are the parking lots, a breeding ground for bad behavior. (Note: please don’t send someone from your car to stand in a parking place. That almost never ends well.)

So as our gift to you, goDCgo has a few tips for getting around the District while keeping you merry and bright. To learn more, read the full blog at goDCgo.com.
