Parking in the city of Boston can be difficult if you’re not familiar with the area. I’ve compiled a list of the best parking deals in the Boston Waterfront and Boston’s North End to help guide you.
Parcel 7 Garage is where I always park if I’m going to North End/Waterfront and plan to not stay for more then 3 hours. Unfortunately, others also know about this garage . . . so sometimes it’s full. If you plan to park at Parcel 7, always have a back-up parking garage choice in mind.
Parcel 7 Garage aka “Haymarket Garage”
Address: 136 Blackstone Street
Located right at the beginning of Hanover St.
Quick & Easy Access To: Haymarket, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Government Center, and City Hall Plaza. You can also walk across the Greenway to the North End, Boston Waterfront, Boston cruises, and the New England Aquarium.
Also Reasonably Close To: TD Garden and North End / nightlife venues, Waterfront, Downtown Boston
Daily Rates: $28 if you’re there for more than 3 hours
You also can get bargain rates with Haymarket vendor validation: $1 for 1-2 hours parking, and parking is only $3 for up to 3 hours, however the regular $28 per day rate kicks in if you park for over 3 hours. This is really, really cheap (if you shop at Haymarket & North End or want to visit the Waterfront), really, really convenient, and in my opinion, one of the best parking bargains in Boston!
There are several other nearby parking deals along the North End’s Waterfront, Commercial Street, and Atlantic Avenue to be found at various small parking lots. Parking rates tend to vary depending on the day, time, and season, so your best bet is to either drive by to see the advertised prices or call the parking garages in advance and inquire. Several Boston parking garages offer ‘Early Bird’ rates- at least some of the time.
