Many facilities require that you make an appointment, so call ahead before you go. Some passport offices have different hours and may not be open on federal holidays.
For example, if you live in Arlington, VA, you can submit your application at the Arlington Main Post Office, the Eads Post Office, the Preston King Post Office, or the South Station USPS facility. If you can’t find a passport facility in your town, look in the surrounding towns.
