my sis, her family and i are planning a trip to D.C. next april. I havent been there since an 8th grade school trip so i am a bit out of the loop. Does anyone know which are areas are currently the safest to stay in, and moderately priced hotels in that area? There will be 3 adults, 2 kids and an infant so we will probably get a 2 room suite versus two seperate rooms. also does anyone know what time in the spring the cherry blossoms usually bloom in Dc?
