Metro at Night

Even though I live here in the DC area, I rarely ride the Metro at night, especially in SE. But tonight, I am going to the Nats game and I plan on taking the Metro. Is the Orange Line safe following a game at night? How is the walk from the stadium to the metro station?

You really shouldn't worry. I personally don't have any qualms about riding metro at night in any case. But before and after baseball games there are thousands of people around. Literally, for your walk from the stadium to the metro station (and for your wait on the station platform) you will be accompanied by thousands of people.

Have a good time at the game!

As stated before, you will be fine. You will be with lots of other people leaving the game as well. And actually the immediate area around from the stadium to the metro is not bad. Most of your walk will be going across the parking lots

I attended a game a few weeks ago - no issues at all. We were in a very large crowd to and from the game. Cars were full as they left the station. Seemed as if most of the people at the game were taking the Metro home.

"On a game night, you'll have no problems. Other nights, I wouldn't recommend going across the Anacostia."

On any night, you don't have to cross the Anacostia to get to the stadium area. :)
