Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

Woodbridge is just off I-95, in the Washington DC - Richmond corridor, with the main drag along US-1.

By train[edit]

The Woodbridge Amtrak station offers train service to/from Washington, D.C. at Union Station, but you'll pretty much need a taxi/car from there, as the US-1 bus routes are limited service, and this area is spread out and not pedestrian-friendly.

By bus[edit]

From Washington, DC[edit]

OmniRide and Metro Direct [1] are bus services that run between Woodbridge, including the Potomac Mills shopping mall, and Washington, DC metro stations.

The primary reason that travelers go to Woodbridge is to go shopping at Potomac Mills.

  • Potomac Mills2700 Potomac Mills Circle (just off I-95). M-Sa 10AM-9PM, Su 11AM-6PM. Anchored by Sears, Costco, Marshalls, Bloomingdales, TJ Maxx, Burlington Coat Factory, Nordstrom Rack, and JCPenney.

Eat[edit]

Woodbridge is home to one of the D.C. area's only two Chicano communities, and is a great place to get some Mexican food.

  • Ricos Tacos Moya13948 US-1 +1 703 499-8602. Disproportionately Mexican clientele and only one server who really speaks English (the daughter), and some incredible food. Highlights are the tacos themselves and the menudo, which is not available every day. They also serve the rare-to-D.C. micheladas—beer with spices, salt rim, and often tabasco sauce and clam juice (clamada). They're a lot of fun.
