We know….we know….parking in certain Seattle locations can sometimes pose a challenge! During peak hours, inexpensive options can be hard to come across. Though Seattle does offer a number of public transportation options, driving and parking downtown can be inevitable.
In downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill, you will find street parking, paid lots, and parking garages.
To avoid paying a fee, a few places around the city offer parking validation dependent on your purchase at the location. Check with local retailers before visiting to determine if this option can save you money and hassle.
In Downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill, street parking is free weeknights after 8pm in most areas and all day Sunday. This free downtown parking is also offered on most nationally observed holidays.
