Parking on the National Mall

National mall parking

Since public parking is very limited near the National Mall in Washington DC, it's a good idea to plan ahead so that you can enjoy your visit without spending too much time driving around looking for free space. On-street parking in busy areas of the city is limited during morning and evening rush hours (7:00 am-9:30am and 4:00 am-6:30pm). There are many metered public parking spaces at the National Mall by Madison and Jefferson Drives in front of the Smithsonian Museum, but they tend to fill up quickly, and street parking is limited to two hours.

The best way to get around the city center and especially around the National Mall is to take public transport. If you want to park in a downtown garage or public parking lot, you should expect to walk a good distance to Washington's popular attractions.
