Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.
The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.
The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.
Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants.

Orbitz.com can help you find cheap flights to Idaho Falls. The Idaho Falls Regional Airport is located at 2140 N. Skyline Drive in the northwest section of downtown, two miles from the center of the business district. It offers regional service to Salt Lake City, Denver, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland and Phoenix on Skywest/Delta Airlines, United Express and Allegiant Air. The closest international airport is Salt Lake International Airport in Salt Lake City, but that airport is a three-hour drive from Idaho Falls and can be an impractical choice in bad weather.
Idaho Falls Regional Airport does not offer any mass transit options for getting to or from the airport. However, the airport is located in the downtown area, so it is feasible to walk to many of the local hotels if you don't have too much luggage. Most of the downtown hotels offer free shuttle service to the airport. Other options for transportation include taxicab service and rental cars. For approximately $10, you can take a taxi from the airport to most points in the downtown area. Avis, Budget, National, Enterprise, Thrifty, Alamo and Hertz rental car companies have an outlet at the airport. Orbitz.com can help you find the best price on a rental car when you make your flight reservations.
Idaho Falls averages 38 inches of snowfall annually in the winter months, so travel during this time of the year can be difficult unless you are planning your trip around winter sports options. July is the area's hottest month of the year, with an average temperature around 86 degrees F, whereas January is the coldest, with average temperatures as low as 10 degrees F.
Idaho Falls River Walk, the Tautphaus Park Zoo and the Museum of Idaho are popular attractions in the local area. If you rent a car and are willing to drive a short distance, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park and Targhee National Forest are all within 100 miles.
