A free app from ParkMe can help you find real-time parking availability in the form of "heat maps" that show the most likely availability for parking on a block-by-block basis. Additional features on the app include a rate calculator, "in-app" route guidance and a timer. ParkMe also offers a widget for businesses to add to their website.  

Valet Parking

Many businesses offer valet parking for the convenience of their customers. Valet parking rates are roughly the same as garage parking rates, with the added bonus of convenience and quicker access to your destination. Hours of operation vary by station – double check these with your attendant.

Valet parking benefits everyone who comes downtown. Each night, using two or three on-street parking spaces, valets can receive dozes of cars and move them into garages, many of which are not open to the general public. Without the valets, those same on-street spaces might serve four or five vehicles.
