Parking downtown is easy! In 2010, the Arena District advocated for overnight parking passes. The parking pass is $17 per month and you can park in the specified lots/ramps as many times as you want after 6pm each evening for no additional charge! To get a pass, visit: grcity.us and look for VIP parking on the home page.

Many parking meters are also free in the evenings in select areas downtown. Be sure to pay attention to dates and times listed on each meter.

If you are planning on drinking, make sure you have a designated driver! If you have a few too many, take advantage of one of our fabulous hotels right downtown, or grab a cab.
