Finally , I am planning to visit Washington for the very first time . I would like to stay in a nice and safe area , preferably bohemian. I don't mind staying in International Chain hotels such as Marriott , but I much prefer a nice Boutique hotel with character given a choice . I would like an area where I can walk, run or perhaps ride a bicycle. Whilst i normally prefer to use public transport whenever possible as it is more environmentally friendly, and I get a cultural experience . Access to public transport is not an issue now , as with COVID 19 , I prefer to walk , cycle, taxi or Uber . The more open space the better , boulevards , parks , and decent upscale mall with coffee shops , boutique restaurants , and health food stores. Obviously , I would like to see the Whitehouse , museums , and any other attractions that is recommended to me . Any input is appreciated as I am planning to visit this August 2021 if possible .
