Agree that resting a car is the best choice and I am confident that you will be able to navigate the roads from the right side!
You will discover that a visit to Arlington National Cemetery is a very moving experience, especially the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Although you didn’t ask, I couldn’t resist offering a few more suggestions for DC.
Visit The W Hotel located at 515 15th Street NW. It is a historical building and has a rooftop lounge with stunning views of the White House.
The Kennedy Center is a spectacular venue that deserves a visit, even if you are not interested in or do not have time to take in a paid performance. You can wander around on your own and explore to a certain degree or take a free guided tour. They are offered daily; reservations not required. Check the website for tour schedules. There are free performances daily at 6:00 pm on the Millennium Stage. The November performances for the Millennium Stage are not available yet, paid performance schedule is available.
DC is gorgeous by day and even more spectacular at night. The national monuments and federal buildings are flooded in lights / illuminated and should not be missed. It can be done on foot, by trolley, bus; select your mode of transportation - you will not regret it.
