    The Silver Diner by the Southwest A gates has great food - I love their vegetarian omelette and milkshakes; - but the food takes awhile. Worth it, though. If I have time, I always have a meal here.

    I love flying into BWI. The renovations are coming along nicely and they have a kids play area now which is really nice! The restrooms are always clean and freshly scented.

    Had not had breakfast or lunch before I arrived & had about a 1.5 hour layover. The food offerings are great & they provide terrific seating areas. Was very nice not having to eat in the terminal.

    Take a picture of your parking space # so you can find your car when you return. And, when you pay inside for parking - you need the receipt AND the ticket when you get to the ticket taker booth ;-)

    Sometimes it doesn't matter if you are TSA Precheck here. They don't do the best job managing traffic in the normal lines, and just open the Precheck lane to anyone, negating the purpose.

    BWI offers a nice range of airlines, convenient access to mass transit, and plenty of parking and rental cars.

    Time before or between flight? Check out Roam Fitness post security terminal D/E for a workout! If you don’t have workout apparel/shoes you can rent. Awesome concept which more airports should adopt.

    During Holiday Travel & International Travel always come at least two hours before your departure time. Getting through TSA Lines can be challenging @ times especially when you’re traveling w/kids ✈️

    If you have time to kill before your flight, in the evening between 8:30-9pm head down towards A-10, A-11 to watch the sunset

    Vino Volo - great food, even better wine., unexpectedly well priced for an airport. Best place to relax and eat at BWI. Near Gates A6-A11

    A, B, & C all connect. Find the fastest security section and walk the 100 or so feet. Super time saver!

    If you're flying southwest, security point C is usually the shortest line but a little out of the way. Double check when you check in to make sure.

    Use lower level security check area if flying Southwest (and other gate B carriers)! The lines there are short to nonexistent - great if you're running late :)

    This airport is the best on the East Coast. It has food, quality of service, ease of movement, and higher end bathrooms than you would expect. Proud to call MD home, and BWI my airport of choice

    Firkin and Flyer in terminal C is a great place to cool your jets before a flight. Grab a drink and a snack and take it across to their lounge to plug in your gear.

    Your good as long as you fly Southwest. Good luck with all other airlines. Baggage claim here is the slowest in America. Use FastPark for off-site parking. They are the best.

    Annoying that Southwest Airlines is located on the complete opposite end of the airport from the light rail stop; walk of a mile +. Parking available for $8 a day;, worth considering vs taxi

    Great airport. TSA PRE CHECK officers are the friendliest around. BEWARE when going to and from the airport. The officers really like I-195 and speeders.

    Great lounge in JetBlue terminal (Terminal D). Tough to find - keep walking past Green Turtle and the unassuming door is just after Dunkin. Platinum AMEX gets you in for free.

    The Burger Joint in Conc. B...good burger, made fresh to order, but be prepared to wait. I ordered a burger and it took 20 min! A med rare burger at that! Hello! It shouldn't take as long to cook!

    The chipotle in concourse A will run out of everything as soon as you get there... Especially if its around 3pm... But it's not a long wait to restock and the food is great!

    Be aware that the shuttle to and from the Rental Car Facility is quite slow as they need to pack it full in both directions. Plan for this to add an extra 30 minutes!

    Beautiful airport. Easy travel, some of the friendliest TSA and airport security I've met in transit. Check out all the different cheese head hats they have!

    TSA-pre check line closes at any time. So if u have TSA Pre-check then don't be sure that u will make it quickly thru the security. And yes they make u remove the laptops.

    There are Clif Bars in one of the vending machines between the light rail stop and baggage claim. They are $3 but a convenient alternative. :)

    They've done a lot of remodeling the last year! You can get to a, b and c terminals from almost anywhere now. C security usually isnt as crowded as A if youre flying southwest!

    One of the most comfortable airports I’ve been in. Uber also has integrated pickup/drop off locations so your driver knows exactly where to find you.
