Neighborhoods to Avoid in Washington DC

Jump to last reply

My husband, my 5 and 7 year olds and I are vacationing in DC next April. I'm trying to hone in on the best hotel for us but want to feel comfortable in the DC neighborhood we choose. Are there neighborhoods you wouldn't feel comfortable leaving your hotel at 7pm?

My idea, albeit early in the planning stage, is to find a hotel within walking distance or short Metro to the White House (we are on list for tour and could be as early as 7:30am). We're looking for a family-friendly neighborhood and have a budget of $200-250 per night.
