  • Will the UK be reduced to a de facto US colony post-Brexit?

    Will the NHS be sold to some US billionaire and privatised? Will they buy our prisons, railways too? And can we expect more degenerate US culture and corporations and more fatties as a result?

    Best answer: About all I can contribute is that there are some areas far away from the tourist zones that have problems with crime and illegal drugs.

    Best answer: About all I can contribute is that there are some areas far away from the tourist zones that have problems with crime and illegal drugs. They are NOT areas that the casual tourist would ever have reason to visit. Just stick with the usual tourist areas, such as around the National Mall, Capitol Hill, and pretty much anywhere in the Northwest section of the city, and you will be fine.

    And yes, you can take photos of the White House from outside the fence. Even for American citizens, it's difficult to get passes to enter the White House, and exterior photos are what most people settle for.

    When you say you avoid Undergrounds, I'm guessing that you mean Metro subway systems. The DC Metro is quite clean and safe, but there are above ground tourist buses that are a reasonable alternatives, including one that goes around the National Mall for only $1.

  • Should I go to a dc trip? or buy a phone?

    Best answer: I say go to Washington. The longer you post-pone going the more likely you will stall going. Besides phones are like fads. Every year a new one comes out, if you buy it, then a better one comes out the next year. If you get out of your state, you'd realize that all the other states have their own qualities... show more

A lot of historic sites to visit in Washington too.

  • Where to visit in Washington DC also what's the weather like in September?

    My mom was telling me about her trip to the East Coast 20 years ago, and she said that when she was in Washington D.C., Virginia, New York, and Maryland, during the summer, the sidewalks were completely brown color because of all the beetles, Roaches, Locusts, Grasshoppers, and Cicadas that were crawling around, and that every time that she took a step, all she would hear was the crunching sound of insects being squished. Also, she said that the air is filled with them and you swallow them while walking. She said it is like that every single summer. Is the East Coast like that during the summer? If it is like that in those areas every single summer, who would want to live in those areas? I read about something online mentioning Cicadas coming out en masse, like every 14 years, or something like that, so maybe she just hit that event.
