A Little Guide To DC

Washington DC owes its name to the iconic congressional buildings and landmark museums that overlook its neighborhoods. Sure, it’s the political capital of the United States, but Washington DC offers so much more than its politics. From its bustling shopping, food, and arts scene in the up and coming Southwest Waterfront district to its famed museums and landmarks on Capitol Hill, DC is truly a fun and eclectic city. Whether you are here with family, friends, or even for a layover, the city offers an incredible number of activities to keep you busy during your visit!

Experience The City With StoreMe At Your Fingertips

Your flight has been delayed, visiting with family, or curious to explore the city for its famed neighborhoods. Whatever your reason is, StoreMe has got you and your luggage covered! Washington DC has been rated as one of the nation’s most walkable cities. So, with that in mind, getting around should be easy. But what about all those bags and luggage weighing you down?

• Schlepping your luggage around on the streets of a new city is no fun coupled with the fact that you stand out like a sore thumb.

• Wheeling around your luggage in a crowded city or through the metro is usually a pain. It’s just hard to be free and mobile with luggage at your feet, which is problematic if you plan on utilizing public transportation or walking a lot.

Clunky, heavy, and difficult to lug around and on top of that you are now forced to join the long line of baggage checks at each museum and landmark you visit, often times being turned away at the entrance. It adds to the stress or your day and takes away from the city experience. Storage has never been easier with StoreMe.
