Annapolis Parking

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, this is perfect for those coming in for a short time and need quick access to their favorite store or restaurant. For those coming to spend longer periods of time, 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, guide books and get other information to make your visit go smoothly. All of the downtown Annapolis parking garages are also served by a free circulator shuttle that runs every 20 minutes throughout downtown Annapolis and passes by every downtown Annapolis parking garage. There are designated stops and you can also waive to the driver and they will stop and pick you up. See the circulator shuttle's current location and route by clicking here.

For 2021 the holiday parking special includes 2 hours of free parking at meters (get a bonus free hour if you use the code ParkDTA on Parkmobile) and $5 parking during Midnight Madness events at Knighton and Park Place Parking Garages.
