We are visiting the USA next April and have booked only flights during our 12 nights we are spending 3 nights in Washington DC before travelling on to New York . We will be visiting the smithsonian museums etc.
Can anyone suggest the best area to stay for 3 nights somewhere safe. We are from England and watch too many movies we are a little scared that Wasington might have some bad area? We have only visited America once before and that was just Las Vegas
Also what will the weather be like early April? And would you suggest bus or train to New York?
