I'll be going to the Dodgers/Nats series this weekend. I'm staying in Arlington. I believe it's the orange line that I'll be picking up. What's the best place to transfer at?

Also, if I'm leaving Arlington around Ballstone station what's the best route driving wise to the stadium? (I should be driving on Sunday to the game).

Thanks for the help.

Take the orange line to L'Enfant Plaza and transfer to the Green Line towards Branch Avenue. Get off at Navy-Yard/Ballpark. The Metro is right next to the ballpark.'

I wouldn't drive, but whatever online directions are from your address should be fine. Parking is pretty easy if you get there early.

Why wouldn't you drive? j/w I am checking out of the hotel Sunday and the game is 1 pm game then after the game leaving for home which is at least 4 hours. So def want to be able to get up and go after the game.

I-66 East to DC, follow signs to National Airport/Rt. 110 South, take I-395 E DC, exit off 6th St. (2nd or 3rd sign that says National Park), head south and 6th turns into 5th, take left at L St., surface lot 1/2 block after turn next to Evans school for $15, follow the crowd to the stadium for 5 blocks walking.

This route avoids most the choke points getting off and on I-395 before and after the game. Whenever you see a lot of cars backed up on I-395, they are trying to take the Capitol Drive or Maine Ave exits. The method above you drive around them and take the less used 6th street exit.

It's just so convenient with the Metro; that's the only reason. In your case it makes sense to drive. You won't have a problem.
