Directions to Downtown and Parking
One of the great things about living, working, and visiting downtown is the ability to park once and walk all day. With several free public lots with no time limit, visitors to the Square and surrounding areas can park in one location and walk to other nearby destinations like the Williamson Museum, the library, and even Blue Hole. Pedestrian travel is protected by well-defined crosswalks and walker-friendly traffic lights; sidewalks are tree-lined and shadowed by stately historical buildings; the greenspace of the courthouse lawn provides an inviting spot to take a break from a full day of shopping or just sit back and watch the world go by. And if you visit downtown via bicycle, there are bike racks located on all four corners of the Square, should you need to park your ride. On-street parking – those spaces directly in front of businesses and the courthouse – is limited to three hours, which many find isn’t quite enough time to fully appreciate all the Square has to offer! Parking in one of the no-limit lots off the Square allows guests to take their time and enjoy the many shops, restaurants, and points of interest downtown. We invite you to come on down and stay awhile!
