HELP - are we criss-crossing the city too much? (8 Replies)
We are leaving next week for an action-packed trip to Washington DC with two teens. I have a full itinerary but I need help understanding if we are keeping to one area - or close-by, each day so we aren't needlessly criss-crossing the city.

Day 1: Supreme Court, Washington Monument (B), National Mall walking...More

How are you planning to get to/from the Udvar-Hazy Museum, because it's out by Dulles Airport? If you're talking about seeing the Air and Space Museum that's on the Mall, near the Museum of American History, that's a different story?

Nope! Crime Down in Historic Core (0 Replies)
I stand corrected. Recently, I posted about a couple of dramatic crimes in the historic core. As a long-time resident, it concerned me. However, reading the Downtown News today, I see the incidents I referred to were both high-visibility exceptions. The stats are in and crime downtown continues to decline as it has over the past decade. Downtown like the rest of the city is a markedly safe place, particularly for a large metropolitan area. ladowntownnews.com/articles/2010/07/07/news/… ...More

Inner Harbor & Crime (3 Replies)
Is it safe to walk around Inner Harbor at night?
August 31, 2017|
It really depends. What are your specific plans? Basically it's a safe area. Once in a while you see a news article about some knucklehead causing problems. But generally safe. Now, if the plans involve a solo traveler getting drunk and strolling around at Midnight walking 6 blocks back to their hotel it may be a different story. So...what's the plan?
