Inauguration 2009

Monday, January 19, 2009

The Official Travel Notes Blog

Some two to three million people are expected to crowd into Washington D.C. tomorrow, for the inauguration of Barack Obama; as the 44th President of the United States of America.

Unless you get there very early, it's going to be extremely hard to get a good viewing spot along the parade route from the U.S. Capitol to the White House.

Washington hotels have never had it so good and DC restaurants began taking reservations right after the election day results were confirmed.

And today, on Martin Luther King Day, all roads to the nation's capital will be filled with coaches taking Americans wishing to be a part of the dream.

Metro Plans for Inauguration Day:
Washington Metro is running on a rush-hour schedule from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Inauguration Day. Stations closest to the festivities will be closed for security reasons Tuesday until after the parade. Others close to inaugural balls will close early.

The formal inaugural program - to take place on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol - begins at 11.30am on January 20th, but the musical prelude will begin much earlier (at around 10am).

Security checkpoints for ticket holders will open at 8am and ticket holders are encouraged to arrive by 9am at the latest, to allow ample time for security screening.

Inauguration Celebrations:
Along with the ten official balls, there are dozens of unofficial celebrations at venues throughout the region.
