The Verizon Center area is always pulsing with excitement, so even if you not coming for an event, take a stroll in this area. For concerts or sporting events, it's an excellent venue, convenient to the Metro.

This was our 1st trip to the Verizon Center. I had purchased tickets for my fiancé's birthday. We stayed in Alexandria and did a UBER ride to the Verizon Center. Game was awesome with the Caps winning. We had no issues while attending the game and will attend another in the near future. Go Caps and Rock the Red!

I did not take a tour inside, but I was outside and it was a lot of action and fun on the streets. There were street performers and a lot of friendly people in the area. Parking was a bit of a problem, but eventually I found a parking garage that was only $15. Not too bad considering that most... More

Despite many visits to DC, this was the first time I had the chance to attend an event at Verizon Center. Ed Sheeran and Christina Perri were phenomenal, but so was the facility. Access to the Metro made it an easy choice to attend the event. Closeness to bars and restaurants make it enjoyable to hang out post concert, while... More

There is always something going on at the Verizon center. This particular time for date night we went to see Kevin Hart. Even with awful nosebleed seats, we enjoyed a good show. The seats weren't as comfortable as could be. They were very close to the row before and behind you. Sound effects and the screen were great. Parking sucked!

I almost had one of the worst nights of my life. We were at the Verizon Center ready to go into the Ed Sheeran concert and we found out our tickets were for the night before! The lady checking tickets sent us right over to the ticket resolution booth. I knew this was 100% my fault but the customer service... More

This venue is perfect for concerts. The security knows what they're doing and there is no scrabble when you enter. The prices are also very good nothing was extremely overpriced like I've seen in other venues. I have amazing times every time and will definitely come again and again.

The place was amazing, specially when you go to your most favorite concert; Enrique Iglesias Tour. The performance what unarguably awesome, and I didn't notice any problem in their services that night.

We were here in April and took in the first game of the playoffs, Caps vs. Islanders. We had great seats and the price was reasonable. It was weird though to see empty seats at a playoff game. The Verizon center is easy to navigate, it's clean and the staff are helpful. There are lots of food choices, from typical... More
