Looking for advice on what section/neighborhood of the DC metro area to stay for a long weekend with the main event being the Redskin's game on Sept 16 at 1pm. We are driving to the game to tailgate and are staying over after the game.
I would always stay in Alexandria in the past but am considering other options.
2 adults, 2 kids under 6. Will have a car. Thinking of Airbnb over a hotel to have more room. (or convince me to stay in a hotel instead.)
Places we're planning on hitting besides the game:
Smithsonian and DC Mall area
Thanks in advance for the advice!Edited: 1:00 pm, July 17, 2018
