parking in Friday Harbor

We are planning a short visit to Friday Harbor in July of this year. I have not seen anything about the availability of parking in the town of Friday Harbor. We will have a car with us and would like to explore the town. Will it be possible to find parking there? Thanks so much!

Yes. "Downtown" is quite small, and while you might have to park a block or two off of the main drag it will not be onerous.

You should have no problem at all with parking on Friday Harbor. There are no meters or paid parking anywhere but they do have one town employee who marks tires in the "downtown" area to limit people to 2 hours in one space.

And that employee means business, so best to watch your 2 hour time window, then move the car. :)

There are no reservations possible to any of the 4 San Juan county ferry served islands. WSDOT ferry system doesn't have them.

There is 8 hour parking up by the courthouse and highschool. Some hotels have their own parking ( Friday Harbor Suites, Earthbox, to name a couple ).

Just drive a bit out of the main downtown area a bit ( well within walking distance ) and you'll find the 8 hour parking.

Enjoy your stay in the San Juan Islands.
