The city of San Antonio has given everyone a great Valentine’s Day gift – Downtown Tuesdays. In an effort to promote downtown as a destination that is as much for residents as it is for tourists, the city is giving away free parking at city provided parking garages, parking lots and parking meters from 5:00PM to 2:00AM. The best part – it starts tonight on Valentine’s Day! Click here for a list of parking garages that you can use.
No coupon, identification, or other collateral is needed in order to obtain free parking. Just park your car and enjoy many of the downtown businesses that are offering discounts and special rates. You can either look for the Downtown Tuesday logo in the windows of local businesses, or check out this list (towards the bottom of the page) for all those restaurants and bars.
With anything free, there is always a catch. Please note that the Downtown Tuesday free parking will not be offered at the Houston Street Garage on Majestic Theatre show nights which include Feb 21, Apr 3, Apr 24, May 1, May 8 and Ma7 22. Additionally, for all you Fiesta goers, there is no free parking downtown during Fiesta.
Overall, this is a great chance to get out and explore downtown San Antonio!
