The Washington Football Team plays their home games at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. The team’s headquarters are in Ashburn, VA. But the heart of the team is in Washington, D.C., one of the most iconic cities in America. The team played at RFK Stadium in DC for 36 seasons, and if the stars align, they will be able to return to DC when the new stadium is built in a few years.
What to Eat
Jack Rose Dining Saloon
Looking for a great whiskey bar while traveling to Washington D.C.? The Jack Rose Dining Saloon is the spot you need to check out. Before the pandemic they had a staggering 2,700 bottle collection on their massive bar walls. That collection was sold off to get through the pandemic, but they have rebuilt it and are back in business, better than ever!
The Rooftop DC
The Rooftop DC offers a great place to drink and eat outside to enjoy downtown Washington DC. The rooftop features a retractable roof to cover for any poor weather. Craft cocktails and tasty bar food ranging from popcorn to a 7 oz. Wagyu filet mignon.
Biggest tourist attraction
National Air and Space Museum
The White House, the National Mall, Lincoln Memorial and other iconic places in Washington D.C. are great tourist attractions to visit while in town. But the National Air and Space Museum gives you an experience that is truly an American treasure. From the Wright Brothers to current air and space history, this museum has everything that made the journey possible.
Under the radar attraction
Hillwood Estate, Museum, and Gardens
The former home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, Hillwood focuses heavily on the House of Romanov, including Fabergé eggs. The residence was turned into a museum following her death. The experience also includes a variety of gardens to explore. It is one of the most unique museums in Washington, and a true treasure to the area.
Game day experience
Washington’s fan experience at FedEx Field has not been good for a long time, and that wasn’t just the product on the field. The franchise has been undergoing a complete facelift over the last year-plus from management, coaching, and fan experience. The new front office is heavily focused on fan engagement and experience, and have worked to transform the experience for when fans return to the stadium this year. Expect a much better time at FedEx Field this year, and that includes the football game being played on the field.
