There are multiple garages and surface lots in downtown Cleveland as well as some street parking. Each varies in price depending on the weekday, time of day and events going on downtown. Best Parking is a great website to use to compare parking prices for garages and surface lots. Please note, street parking is free on Saturdays, Sundays and major Holidays.
Note: 12/30/21 With construction beginning on the Sherwin Williams building many of the surface lots around Public Square are no longer available. You may consider parking in Playhouse Square (at the end of the tour instead).
Returning to the Starting Point
If the tour ends in Playhouse Square it is about a 10 – 15 minute walk, straight back up Euclid Ave to return to the starting point.
What to Wear
Most of our walking tour is outside and face masks not required. For our inside stops, face masks are not required in those buildings at this time (that could change without notice). Please wear your mask as you are comfortable.
