Arlington Cemetery to Founding Farmers vis Car or Metro?

We will be at Arlington National Cemetery on a Tuesday, and have a 5:45 reservation for Founding Farmers. We will have a rental car. Will it be easier to leave the car at the Visitors Center and take the Metro to Founding Farmers, or will parking be easy to find at that time of day at Founding Farmers? Thoughts ... opinions ...

Parking, other than in a garage, will be impossible near Founding Farmers. Rush hour restrictions will be in effect. And the price of parking at Arlington Cemetery goes up after three hours as I recall. arlingtoncemetery.mil/visitorinformation/Par…

You haven't heard about how terrible rush hour traffic is in DC? It's one of the most heavily congested metro areas in the country, worse than Atlanta, Chicago and LA by some counts. You really don't want to be driving anywhere anytime around 5 to 7:30 on a weekday.

In fact, just ditch your rental car all together. Public transit is usually a much easier way to get around. You don't need to pay the rental fees.

The parking lot at Arlington Cemetery closes at 8 :00 p.m., I think you'd be be cutting it close.

It's only two metro stops between the two places. If you can avoid driving to the Cemetary in the first place that's what I'd recommend.
