We encourage all downtown visitors to park in one of our eleven parking garages. Listed within the Explore Map as well as on the printable Parking Guide are the hours of operation and costs for each garage. The downtown parking garages are well lit and are in close proximity to many key attractions. These parking options are meant to help better serve you – our guests.
