Note that Metro Silver Line to Dulles International Airport is opening to public on November 15. It will take close to an hour to go from the airport in Chantilly, VA to downtown DC Metro Center Station. But should cost only around $6. And just two stops further to the National Mall.

I've payed between $30.-$45. for a Lyft or Dulles Taxi to get to the airport in the past.

You will now have access to both Washington, DC airports by Metro.

Mr. Moderator, he said "we find an RV park" and then go from there. So I figured he wasn't set on another mode.

If they are staying in an RV Cherry Hill is their best bet. Cherry Hill is setup for and caters to DC tourist.
There are other decent parks and decent options however those places won't cater to tourist like Cherry Hill. You will need to be a bit more DC savey to stay in the alternative parks.
If you are staying in a hotel consider the Old Towne Alexandria area.

OP has apparently secured a motel close proximity to Old Town Alexandria. Actually, didn't asked for RV parks.

OP again. We've completed our visit, but I waited before saying so in case there were more comments that might others considering visiting DC.

We stayed at a Quality Inn in Alexandria, <3 miles from the Huntington Metro station.

We had a great time, including visiting Old Town Alexandria. We plan to come back in a couple of years to see the things we couldn't get to in the five days we were there.

Thanks to all for the suggestions and information. Very helpful!
