Spring is Here! Time to Get Out to Nationals Park in Southeast

Nationals Park
1500 South Capitol St., SE
Washington, DC 20003

OK, so last year the Washington Nationals were lousy, and the team hasn’t even crested the .500 mark since the franchise moved to the capital in 2005.

But, I’ll tell you one thing: They sure have an impressive stadium.

Not only that, but as I’ve said before on this site, seeing a Major League Baseball game live is like few other experiences. There’s just something wholesome, quaint – even exciting – about it. It’s fun for the whole family (well, as long as you don’t get seated next to some drunken fool, but hopefully that won’t happen).

Opening Day at Nationals Park against the Atlanta Braves – March 31 – is fast approaching. Livan Hernandez will be on the mound for the Nationals as they try to start the season on a positive note. At this late date, I’m pretty sure it’s sold out (I couldn’t find any tickets on their site), and I’m also assuming those of you who plan to be there already have your tickets. We here at ApartmentShowcase.com certainly don’t suggest you buy from scalpers, but we do suggest you sally forth to the riverfront and watch the Nats play soon.

Getting back to Nationals Park … A fun day or night here is worth the trip itself, win or lose. Seating 41,546, the park is designed to uniquely reflect capital architecture. Not only that, but when fans traverse the park’s circulation ramps, they’re treated to panoramic views of the city, including Capitol Hill, the Washington Monument, Navy Yard and the riverfront itself.

Of course, even myopic fans in the nosebleed seats will be able to catch all the action on the 4,500-square-foot, high-definition scoreboard. Another great thing is, if you live in the metro region, you can take the Metrorail’s Green Line and get off at the Navy Yard stop. It’s only about a block away from the stadium.

Nationals Park is located in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood of Southeast, an area that’s coming alive; in fact, it’s already a great place to rent an apartment.

So, again, come on out and enjoy yourself at Nationals Park this season and take in the burgeoning Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. If you like it, maybe you’ll decide to stay awhile. You can find apartment rentals anytime with Apartment Showcase.
