Washington Driving Stress Level: 5/10

Parking in central Washington is at a premium and the daily rush hours make driving quite difficult. The public transportation system is good, however, so there is little need to drive in this part of the city. Outside of the area driving is straightforward and pleasant, and a great way to explore this sprawling city.


There are no municipal parking lots in downtown Washington and only a number of office buildings and large hotels feature parking areas. These are usually private or pricey. Most of the main attractions in Washington do not feature parking areas, but free parking spaces can be found along Jefferson Drive, Madison Drive and Ohio Drive, though these fill up quickly. Metered street parking is often the easiest option when parking in the city and it becomes cheaper the further the walking distance from the centre.
