Your wife is right. DC is full of people who prey on tourists & you have to


always be on guard at night. Predators/robbers hang on the streets, eyeing from a distance anyone who looks like an easy target. Since no one has eyes in the back of their head, you should always be with someone, with both of you constantly scanning the area around you. Do not drop off your wife at the hotel door & then go park the car by yourself in the garage, even if it's close-by. Parking garages are ideal spots for robbers to surprise you as you walk between cars. If you cannot be with someone, just pay the extra money for valet parking.
You won't be robbed in a crowd, but try very hard to avoid being alone or walking alone on the street.with just your wife and no one else around. Listen to your wife.
