    Absolutely amazing place! Not long ago there was nothing here, now the waterfront is amazing and includes several good dining options, green space for picnics and more. All in walking distance to Nat's ballpark

    This park is beautiful and runs along the river, as well as a bunch of restaurants which open up into the space. There's a little dog run, a fountain that children play in during the summer, iconic architectural elements, a boardwalk, green grass, trees, and room to sit and watch the world go by. It's great for couples and families alike because there are so many different things to do.

    I have always enjoyed going to this old yard. If you are there over a weekend then you can encounter some of the most awesome public events.

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.
