Parking tips for downtown Annapolis


The historic downtown Annapolis area is a beautiful small area that is easily walkable or bikeable from any of our Annapolis parking garages or parking lots.  The majority of on-street parking is limited to 2-hour parking or less and is paid to park. On commercial streets, you can pay at kiosks or use the ParkMobile app. On residential streets, you must pay using the ParkMobile App.  Enforcement is pretty strict for on-street parking. On-street parking starts at $2 per hour and is $3 per hour on City Dock and $4 per hour on residential streets. We recommend heading to parking lots and parking garages where you can park all day when you visit Annapolis.

For those coming to spend longer periods, the parking garages all allow for all-day parking at very reasonable rates.  If it's your first time visiting downtown Annapolis the Gotts Court Parking Garage is right next to the Visitors Center where you can pick up walking maps, guidebooks, and talk with local guides to get information to make your visit go smoothly. Many of the downtown Annapolis parking garages along West Street are also served by a free circulator shuttle that runs every 10 minutes and takes you downtown. There are designated stops where it will stop and pick you up. See the circulator shuttle's current location, stops, and route by clicking here. Hillman Parking Garage is the closest Parking Garage to the Main Street/City Dock area with entrances on both Duke of Gloucester and Gorman Streets. This is a gateless paid parking garage. you can pay with the Park Mobile or Premium Parking App, Text by phone, or at the kiosks on the lower level.
