Getting To The Kennedy Center

The Kennedy Center is located at 2700 F St, NW, Washington, DC 20566. Parking at the KC is expensive so the use of public transportation is recommended. The nearest metro stop to the KC is Foggy Bottom on the blue/orange/silver lines and the KC Shuttle runs approximately every 15 minutes. Exit the Foggy Bottom station and look for the KC Shuttle Stop immediately in front of you, to the left of the vendor table that is usually by the curb. Please plan to arrive at Foggy Bottom with enough time to catch a shuttle that will get you to the Kennedy Center before the 11am start of the tour. The Metro 80 bus also stops directly in front of the KC. For schedule and route information please visit

Parking in the KC Garage is $23 flat rate regardless of the amout of time. Limited meter parking is on the streets around the KC and The Watergate Building also has a paid parking garage. If you park at a meter make sure you have the parking app to add additional time. 2 hours will not be long enough and they DO write tickets in the area.
