Location & Transportation
Located just five miles west of Washington, DC, McLean boasts easy access in and out of the community via a host of transportation methods. A number of state and interstate expressways and major airports combine with rail and boating options to make McLean a simple origin or destination for any type of traveling — long or short distance. With a centralized location midway between New York and Miami and less than a day’s drive from anywhere east of the Mississippi River, McLean is a great spot for personal or business traveling.
McLean bisects the Interstate 495 beltway. Connections to other major thoroughfares (including I-270, I-95 and I-66) are simple and useful in accessing the Eastern Seaboard and the rest of the country. Additionally, a number of taxi, limousine and chauffeur businesses operate in the area to serve any type of driving need.
Air travelers are served by Dulles International and Reagan National airports, both less than 20 miles away. Each is one connection away off I-495, and both serve millions of travelers each year. The numerous traveling options include Amtrak, Metrorail and Virginia Railway Express train services and an array of bus choices.
