Hartford Local Customs: 6 reviews and 6 photos
If you're looking for event parking, try the street before paying for a garage; you don't have to feed the meters at night (after 6, I think). If you're going to the Bushnell Memorial (concert/theater venue, not the park), there's free parking in the state lot across Capitol Ave.
But if you're going to the bar district, use the paid parking lots--I know of someone who parked on the street early in the evening & later in the evening the police put up no parking cones & had their car towed! Also be aware that the police block off various streets in the bar district about 1:15-1:30 am Fri. & Sat. night (technically Sat. & Sun. morning), theoretically to assist in the exiting of all the parked cars, so you'll find it difficult to get INTO that area then; & if you're here for any length of time don't think you're going to figure out WHICH streets they're going to block, because they keep changing it every weekend!
