Unless you are in excellent health, just go ahead and pay the $23 for parking in the Kennedy Center. Even the closest alternative at the Watergate is a long-ish walk, uphill, in the cold. If Metro is convenient for you and you are not in a rush, that, with the shuttle bus to the Kennedy Center, is the best option.
