Break out the sunscreen and head to the nearest pool or beach, because it’s officially summer! You may want to stay local though, because D.C. is home to some of the hottest events all summer long. Whether you’re looking for family activities, date night, or something to do with friends, the D.C. area has it and Atlantic can get you there.

Go Nats! Nats Park
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack! There is nothing better than going to a baseball game in the summertime. Being in the D.C. Metro area means having Nats Park in your backyard, and luckily Atlantic Parking has two parking locations right near the stadium:

Summer doesn’t always have to be spent outdoors to make it memorable! Paul McCartney will be at the Verizon Center Tuesday, August 9th. Reserve a parking space with Atlantic nearby at the 505 9th St. NW garage.
