I have a 8 hours layover time at IAD before catching an international flight. I arrive at 2.40 on a Saturday (12th May) and leave at 10.40 p.m. I will have a 2 year old kid and 3 carry on luggages.
I intend to see only the white house (no tour) and capitol building. Given the traffic situation that I have heard off, is it advisable/ doable to rent a car and cover those two places? Or it would be risky? Is there any other way to go to those places rather than renting a car. I think I can use metro but it would be very time consuming.
Awaiting some expert opinions.
