    Weekday parking near the aquarium


    Anyone have any input for parking near the aquarium in Boston? Most of the places listed on the aquarium website are for after 5pm or on weekends.

    I could just take a bus into south station and take the subway from there, but I'd much rather have my own wheels. I'm hoping to take my daughter to the aquarium on Wednesday. Any first-hand info would be appreciated.

    There is a huge garage right in front of the aquarium. You cant miss it.

    I saw that on the Google street view, but wasn't sure if it was open to the public or aquarium vistors. Do you know if it's reserved for any particular businesses?

    When we went a few years ago, we just parked in one of the nearby public parkings, and we were all set. Be very carefull tho NOT TO park in PRIVATE "public" parkings, as they will charge you one arm and one leg!! Happend to me once and it took me the rest of the day to get over it...LOL

    It's very public. Ive never not been able to park there at any time.

    Alternatively, you might want to think about parking closer to Quincy Market, which is only about 2 blocks from the place with the fishes. You could have lunch there...

    That's still better than the bus and subway route for me though. I don't expect I'll be there more than a couple hours anyway.

    When in Boston I usually park at the South Station Bus Terminal. Something like $6 or $8 for the day on the weekend. It's right next to South Station where you can catch the red line.
