Parking in Savannah's Historic District can be a sticky situation. Even though you may see people illegally parked in yellow lines and against fire hydrants, please don't feel compelled to do the same after you have ridden past four squares looking for that elusive space. Instead of risking being ticketed or towed, explore your options.
There are a number of city parking garages in the historic district. Visit the Mobility & Parking Service Office to buy a 1 or 2 day parking pass for $7 and $12 respectively. This allows you unlimited parking in any city parking garage or lot. This city website gives all the garage locations and hours for parking. Once you have parked, if your spot is a distance from where you need to be, take advantage of the city's free CAT (Chatham Area Transit) Shuttle service to get you closer to the action. There are also plenty of metered street spaces. You only have to feed the meters between 7:30am and 5:00pm Monday through Friday. The city does not ticket expired meters outside of that time frame. The Visitor's Center at Liberty St. and MLK Blvd has a large parking lot. No charge for parking on Sundays.
