While a coveted area of town, some are discouraged to explore the historic downtown area due to the parking situation. Most parking is metered, reserved, or pay parking only and even with that, finding a space can be challenging to impossible depending upon the date and time. If you happen to be staying in the 1886 Crescent Hotel
or the 1905 Basin Park Hotel
, you will be able to park in secured parking (Basin Park offers Valet Parking) and you only need to call for a shuttle to get where you want to go.
