Seattle is the birthplace of Nirvana, Bill Gates and Jimi Hendrix. It’s the city that never sleeps and always offers its visitors something interesting to check out. But what about finding a parking spot in Seattle? Here are some useful tips that’ll help you out.
There is plenty of on-street parking in the city. The rates are from $1 to $4 per hour, and are enforced Mon-Sat, 8AM-6PM or, depending on the particular location, 8AM-8PM. The time limit is 2, 4 or 10 hours. Coins and debit/credit cards are accepted.
A pay-by-phone option is available at all on-street locations. It allows you to pay for parking from your cell phone, saving you the necessity of finding a pay station and getting a receipt. Visit the city’s official website to learn more about this feature.

Monthly parking in Downtown Seattle is usually quite expensive, ranging from $200 to $350.
