Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Home of the Washington Nationals, Nationals Park opened in 2008. This modern stadium seats almost 42,000 people and offers two types of tours focusing on the history of baseball and the home team. Game-day tours take you to a luxury suite, the press box, and the visiting team dugout. Non-game day tours include these stops as well as the visiting team clubhouse, a chance to throw a pitch in the Nationals bullpen, and a visit to the Nationals' dugout (instead of the visiting team's dugout). Throughout the tour, you'll pass historical photos and baseball memorabilia. The tour includes lots of walking, so dress comfortably.

  • Nationals Park is sweet. A nice place to see a ballgame. The food was good but very pricey. Eat before you go.  more »
  • We were in DC and decided to take our 4 kids and meet a family friend to a game. We were able to get affordable tickets right at the kiosk. The cost was so affordable compared to what we pay to watch ...  more »
  • After my third trip to the Nats stadium with my family, I have to say that the food and food service is a 1/5, or maybe less. Maybe we should stick to chicken fingers or hot dogs like normal baseball ...  more »

  • Nationals park is always a great place to go when the weather is good and your team is winning. The park is so clean. All the facilities are well managed. The whole park is laid out so that navigating is intuitive. Only thing I would love for them to bring back would be the fun games and activities for kids and adults, but that's just me reliving the glory days.
  • This stadium is great and a must see for any baseball fan. The stadium layout is very spacious making moving throughout the stadium very easy. The seats are some of the most spacious in terms of leg room I've never at in. The food is phenomenal and there's a wide variety of different places to get food.
  • If parking were easier or less expensive I would give 5 stars. Seating is as good as stadium seating gets. Food, there is a huge selection regardless of where you are seated. Beverages, also a great selection both non-alcoholic and alcoholic.
  • Always a great day for a ball game. This gets four stars because the Braves were playing. Come see them at their new stadium in GA if you'd like exposure to 5 Star Stadiums.
  • Nationals Park has a lot going for it. Taking the water taxi from Old Town is a great way to experience a little more of the city and surrounds on the visit. Skip the traffic and enjoy a good meal in Old Town prior to the game if you're coming from the Virginia side. Most of the seats in the stadium are good enough to see the game and being a newer stadium the overall experience is enjoyable. Still feels like DC, seemingly higher level of security along with unsurprising high prices in the stadium. If you decide to park in the garage near the stadium expect dogs and the mirror under the car.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
