Largest Jewish community is in Silver Spring, which is a suburb of Washington. For tourists, best place to stay is in downtown Silver Spring, which has a metro stop and a nearby  shul in Woodside Park within walking distance.

The shul website also has alot of helpful tourist information

Things to do
Washington Monument closed until Spring 2019

you have to search - rates depend on season and demand.
DC shul is KESHER, and a Maryland shul that's closest to DC is Woodside Synagogue Ahavas  Torah, so just calculate distances.
Char Bar is the only kosher restaurant in DC
