DC area ranked in the top 3 best summer travel destinations

The D.C. area was named the number two best summer travel destination by WalletHub.

According to Axios reporter Mimi Montgomery, the proposed renovations could take over a decade to complete and cost nearly $9 billion.

The reimagined layout of the 115-year-old station will include underground spaces for pick-up, drop-off, and parking. The station will be transformed into a more sleek and modern building featuring new entry points, ramps, and potentially outdoor seating areas.
