Zoe at Clutches & Cobblestones says, ”Garages are for Quitters.” She gives a lesson on finding visitor street parking in the North End. Perhaps surprisingly, her first recommendation is Hanover Street.
“Yes really. Do not dismiss <Hanover> street just because it is the epicenter of the North End. Half of the spots are valet but the other half are meters!! $1/hour before 8pm. There are commercial spots free after 7pm. FREE. Just as long as you check your signs, your night just started off that much cheaper. If Hanover has nothing open, don’t try the side streets – they are a lost cause.”
