Redskins Training Camp
Football fans who are experiencing gridiron withdrawal will not want to miss the Washington Redskins get ready for the 2013 season by visiting the team’s training camp. Practice sessions are open to the public from July 25 through August 16 and admission is absolutely free. Located in Richmond, Virginia, Redskins Park is a brand new, state-of-the-art facility that’s about 105 miles south of Washington, D.C. By car, it will take approximately an hour and 40 minutes. Expect to be duly impressed by the contemporary complex, which is home to two regulation-size football fields, a field house, walking/running trail, water wall, and children’s music garden. There’s also a 500-seat amphitheater where you can enjoy all types of concerts and performances along with unique festivals all year long.
If you’re so inclined to show your support for the Washington Redskins at these action-packed practice sessions, you’ll want to be prepared. Since the sessions last anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours, be sure to bring either a lawn chair or blanket. A picnic lunch or snacks of some kind and plenty of water is recommended. And don’t forget to bring a camera and something to get signed. Why? Good question. And we’ve got a great answer: because after every practice, you’ll have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to have your picture taken with your favorite player and get autographs. As for parking, there are several options. Three parking facilities in the City of Richmond cost $5 for the day while the City Stadium lot is $7.
