As one of the country's most accessible cities, Washington is surrounded by three major airports, Amtrak and a first-rate subway system, Metro. The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is located between 7th and 9th Streets and N Street and Mt. Vernon Place in downtown DC, right across from Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square.
