I'm wanting to attend the Giants/Skins MNF game on 12/3 at FedEx Field. Would it be cheaper for us to park (4 people going) or would it be cheaper for us to take a Metro, and what would be the best option for taking the metro? any help would be appreciated :)

Me and my dad went to the 2009 MNF game vs. the Skins. We stayed over night and walked from our hotel to the game(about a 30 minute walk). Don't know if you'll be staying but if you do, you can find a hotel close to the stadium and walk. Parking is 20$ at most stadiums so you could park 5 bucks a person. The farther away you park the cheaper it is so you could probally find 10 dollar parking.

I live in the DC area and have been to only a couple of games. I have not taken the metro, but i hear it's a long walk and a long bus ride. If you drive be prepared for a long long ride with a lot of traffic. Also, there is not much parking onsite. Without a parking permit, you will have to park pretty far away and take a bus (not sure how much it cost). I would suggest if you drive to look on craigslist for a parking permit.

Basically, if you listen to most Redskins fans, they hate the overall game day experience and long for going to RFK.

I live in the DC area. When i go to FedEx field i take the metro because after the game you can never get out of the parking lot. The walk from the metro is not that long about 10-15mins. If u can get a parking permit for $20 it would be alittle cheaper because depending on how far your are rinding the metro from determines the amount you pay. Its usually 4 something oneway.

I go to the giants game there every year and never have trouble with traffic. I say park there, I took the metro once and it takes ages to get home from the game like two hours down the orange line

I've been there the last few years. It's a long cold walk if you do the metro. 15 to 25 minutes doesn't sound like much but bad weather can make life difficult. I parked in the cash parking lot and had a great time tailgating with several redskin and giants fans. The earlier the better is the key with traffic. FedEx is a dump but it is nice to hit up different stadiums now and then. Have fun. Overall the redskin fans are very decent. I've never had a problem with any of them. Have a good time.

I try and make this game every year, as the skins fans annoy me least. Parking is pretty cheap around the stadium. I have always driven there without any parking pass.

So why are they selling parking passes for $50+?

So why are they selling parking passes for $50+? because it is closer and also because people dont know any better. you can find tons of $10-$30 parking , i think i always pay $20 and its pretty close.

Like Harooni said, people don't know better. Depending on the stadium, you can park for free. I went to the Thursday Night game vs. Carolina this year and was able to park for free. Only had to walk about 20 minutes to the stadium. Worth it.
