Take me out to the ball game

by

There’s no better way to spend a summer afternoon or evening than at a game cheering on your team. In Washington, you have two major league choices – baseball and soccer.

Baseball returned to Washington in 2005 when the Expos moved from Montreal and became the Washington Nationals. After several seasons at RFK (the former home of the Redskins), they have now relocated to the new Nationals Park on the Capitol Riverfront, anchoring a revitalization of the waterfront neighborhood.

Local favorites offering food inside the new park include Washington institution Ben’s Chili Bowl, local hamburger chain Five Guys, local ice cream favorite Giffords, and a new addition this year – open pit barbeque at the Red Loft.

Still playing back at RFK are the DC United, DC’s major league soccer franchise.  The United has a strong fan base with several clubs representing at every game including the famed Barra Brava. The United have won the MLS Championship 4 times and won the US Open Cup in 2008.

The easiest way to either stadium is on the Metro – RFK is closest to the Stadium / Armory station on the Orange and Blue lines and Nationals Park is near the Navy Yard station on the Green line. Or consider starting at Eastern Market and enjoying the restaurants and shopping in the neighborhood before walking to either stadium (it’s about a mile).

Tickets are generally available but if you need assistance, just ask. We’re happy to help.
