I am taking a few days off in March and would like to go somewhere. FI will be on a week long boys fishing trip and instead of staying home alone, I was thinking about going to Washington DC (maybe from watching too much The West Wing). I would like to see the museums and usual stuff that the city offers. I like traveling alone (did it for years) but I am nervous on how safe it would be for me to go alone. Where are some safe areas to stay? Recommendations on where to go and eat would be great too.
