About Navy Yard

Navy Yard is a neighborhood that has seemingly risen overnight since the Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals, opened in 2008. The neighborhood on the Anacostia River, named for its historic Navy facility, is a sprawling development of government, commercial, retail, and residential properties. The neighborhood also provides an interesting vantage point for one of the best views of the city and is beginning to rival its more mature cousin, Capitol Hill.

Getting Around Navy Yard

Around Navy Yard

There are many housing options that have become available in Navy Yard over the past several years. The ballpark has spurred the construction of row houses, condominiums, and apartments. North and east of M Street SE is a huge selection of newly constructed brick row houses which, although new, have a lot of style and character.

Whether you stay on M Street just east of East Capitol Street SE or venture one block in any direction north or south, you will find an emerging restaurant scene unfolding before your eyes. Many of the establishments that have opened in Navy Yard recently fall in the fast-casual category. There are a handful of fine dining offerings available as well.

If baseball is in season, you'll see a lot of crowds heading to and from the game--The neighborhood can feel a little desolate once the Nats are gone. Yards Park, which has a boardwalk along the river, and Canal Park, which has dancing fountains in warm months and an ice skating rink in the winter, draw families with small children. Overall the neighborhood is very family-friendly, but cool enough for young professionals.

Friday nights have come alive in Navy Yard. The recent development boom has led to a revival of this area as a D.C. destination. There are many restaurants and bars that appeal to those who are young and hip as well as to those who are young at heart. The neighborhood boasts two microbreweries, barbeque and Italian restaurants, and many fast-casual spots. You should be able to find some form of entertainment, including pre-game drinks and music, in the Bullpen venue open prior to every Washington National's game.

Begin your Sunday by enjoying your morning coffee and paper at the neighborhood's riverfront park. Take a stroll to the nearby microbrewery, catch a baseball game, or head further west on the riverwalk and rent a canoe, kayak, or paddle boat. You can take your new mode of transportation and travel upstream to view the city from both banks. Complete your Sunday with an outdoor concert at dawn, or by just catching the sunset at the park.
