If you live close enough to walk, run, skate, or bike, those are great options, too!


If you need to drive, please consider parking at one of the City’s garages (listed below) so you can hang out and shop all day without needing to feed the meters!


Metered street parking and some free street parking may be available. Please be aware that parking regulations are strictly enforced.


The better option is to park in one of the three designated downtown parking garages (fees apply) and walk or ride the free Looper Trolley. The trolley runs about every 15 minutes, from 9:30am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday looping from the SUNDIAL Garage to Beach Blvd. Both are handicap-accessible.
