Baseball is back in D.C.! We’ve been going to games since the team started playing at RFK stadium in 2005. In 2008 the Washington Nationals were moved to Nationals Park in Southeast D.C. The park is a great place to take the family or just hang out with friends. The stadium has a great atmosphere, food and always seems very clean.With the recent acquisition of Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth games are very exciting.
The stadium has plenty of things for the kids to do besides watching the game. A playground is available for the kids to play in. Screech the mascot is usually strolling around the stadium to meet the fans and take pictures. During the game you can root on your favorite President when they race around the outfield. The running joke was Teddy was never going to win a race but the Nats made the post season Teddy finally won a race. The newest president is William Taft and he can be found around the stadium before and during the game.
The concession stands offer many different types of food for the kids and adults. Right next to the children’s play area is a concession stand that sells kid friendly options like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. If you don’t want to hit the concession stands you can grab a table at The Red Porch Restaurant while you watch the game.
National Stadium is great place to visit and watch a game!
