TRAVEL & LODGING

What airport should I fly into?

Dulles International (IAD) is the closest airport to Winchester. We offer a (complimentary) shuttle service to and from Dulles only. Once you have your flight information, please EMAIL US and we will let you know when we will be picking up and dropping off.

Is there transportation from the airport to The Alamo?

We will have a shuttle to pick you up from Dulles only and bring you to The Alamo and back to the Airport on Monday. Please notify us no later than August 21st if you will be using that service so we can plan accordingly. EMAIL US with your flight information and number of people in your group and we will notify you with our pickup times within 48 hours of your arrival day.

What hotel should I use?

There are now two hotels located in the same parking lot as The Alamo, a simple walk next door and you're there! The Comfort Inn was completed in 2020, and the Country Inn is the hotel most GenreBlasters are familiar with.
