Ashburn a Winning Location for Redskins Fans
Oh, I wonder if there are any Washington Redskins fans out in the D.C. suburbs?
Yes, I’ve pondered that question a few times while researching and writing this post. Guess what? For those of you who don’t know, the team is headquartered in Ashburn, Va. So, if you’re a Redskins fan and were thinking about getting an apartment in Ashburn anyway, your decision just got a lot easier.

Owner Dan Snyder has sure taken his share of knocks since buying the team back in 1999, but one positive you can point to is his diligence in making the team’s headquarters an attraction to the area’s many ‘Skins diehards.
In years past, the training camp featured several days where camp was open to the public, with the generous franchise making sure that Redskins merchandise was available to purchase there as well. Non-alcoholic drinks and snacks were also available for purchase at prior open camps, though unlike with the trinkets, it was a cash-only enterprise.
The Ashburn renter (who is a ‘Skins fan) won’t want to miss either the annual Fan Appreciation Day, which features an intra-squad scrimmage, or Loudoun County Day, where county-based businesses sponsor Redskins-themed face painting, a rock climbing wall and chances to win various prizes.
