Parking Downtown

My husband and I are staying at the Springhill Suites this Friday. From what I've seen, it's better to drive into downtown than to walk. Is there lots of parking available downtown? How expensive is it? We are thinking we'll probably spend a lot of time just exploring the downtown area (we're thinking of moving there), then going up to Main st. for the parade and holiday lights and all that, then going to dinner. Any suggestions for where to eat or things to make sure we see?

Parking should not be a problem on Friday. I would suggest parking at the Festival Market/Victorian Square parking structure. I assume that is the Springhill on South Broadway. If so, just make a left onto Broadway coming out of your hotel and head downtown. As you cross Main Street (with Rupp Arena on your left), get in the right hand lane and make the next right onto Short St. The entrance to the garage will be on your right.

That would be preferable to street parking, as meter parking is $1.00 per hour with a two hour limit. STRICTLY ENFORCED.

After 5 and on the weekends, except during special events, you can park in metered spaces for free. If you wanted to walk downtown on Saturday, that would be an option for you. During the Christmas parade, there will be special event parking and depending on where you park, it could range from $5 or $6 to $10.
