FIELD TRIP DIRECTIONS FOR TFIV

Field Trip Directions

  • Because of the copier situation in the building, I was unable to distribute written directions on Tuesday. Directions to the Half-Shell for parents who would like to pick up their students can be found here.
  • Metro directions are as follows:
  • Take the metro from Foggy-Bottom to L’Enfant Plaza. (Take the Orange line going toward New Carrollton or the Blue line going toward Largo Town Center). It will be six stops, not including Foggy-Bottom.
  • At L’Enfant Plaza, transfer to the Green Line going toward Branch Avenue. Get off at the Waterfront-SEU stop. It will be one stop, not including L’Enfant Plaza.
  • We will meet people from the Living Classrooms Foundation at the top of the metro. (There’s only one exit.) I will be at the stop to meet you.

Metro/Walking Directions

Take the Metro to the Waterfront/SEU station (it’s on the Green Line).

So, to get from the metro to the marina, students will need to:
1-get off at green line’s Waterfront/SEU station
2-at top of escalator do a 180 to face the street, walk to the sidewalk and make a right (on M St.)
3-at the end of the block M St. crosses 6th and becomes Maine Ave.  cross 6th, cross M/Maine
4-Maine bends to the right.  Continue along Maine until the next cross street.  Marina will be on the left.  The sign says “The Gangplank Marina” at the top, but the biggest word is Odyssey.  The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is also on the sign.  Enter the parking lot and walk towards the big propeller sticking out of the sidewalk.  We’ll be there.

This Metro Stationmasters map is helpful (we’re right next to the Channel Inn, which is marked): http://stationmasters.com/System_Map/WATRFRNT/watrfrnt.html

Driving

As for driving from the city, take Georgia Ave/ 7th street downtown all the way to Water Street.  Turn Left on Water street (runs alongside Maine Ave; cross Maine and make immediate left) and the Marina will be about a block down on the right.  Parking is available at the Channel in Hotel (to the right side of the marina) for 10-12 dollars or at the Spirit of Washington parking lot further down Water street for $12.  Unfortunately we can’t have guests park in the marina parking lot.
