Where to Park Around Verizon Center

January 10, 2013

It can be a frustrating experience to find a parking space in downtown Washington, DC, especially when there’s an event at Verizon Center. But don’t worry! The Monumental Network has done the research for you, and we’re here to help find a parking spot near Verizon Center that won’t break the bank.

Parking for Verizon Center events is available in several garages near the arena.

Additionally, limited street parking spaces are available for $2 an hour from 7 AM to 10 PM, Monday through Saturday, on the surrounding streets of Penn Quarter and Chinatown. Street parking is free throughout the city on Sundays.

If driving into the city is your transportation of choice, you should know that downtown Washington, DC is serviced by several parking companies. They include Atlantic Parking, Central Parking, Colonial Parking, InterPark, LAZ Parking and PMI Parking, among others.

Parking spaces can be scarce in the city, and events only increase demand on the limited supply of spaces available. Some parking garage operators use special event rates to ensure that those who need parking are able to purchase it. These event rates vary from garage to garage, though most will not exceed $20 or $25.

We’ve handpicked several of the closest garages to Verizon Center to help you make an educated choice.  If you’re looking for additional options, most of the parking companies mentioned in this article offer maps-based interactive websites that allow you to scan all of their parking options in the area surrounding Verizon Center.

It’s a good idea to call in advance to make sure the parking garage you’ve chosen has open spaces available. We hope this list helps you find a convenient parking spot!
