This being DC, it’s time to start figuring out your plans for the Inauguration. If you want to get close enough to see the swearing-in, start watching the websites of your members of Congress- all tickets are distributed via members of Congress to their constituents.

If you plan to run like hell to get away from the crowds, we have a fine list of Getaways that will let you get far enough out of the city to not be disturbed for a few days.
If you’re planning to have guests in from out of town that weekend, make sure you pick up an air mattress or something- hotels will likely be booked solid.
