Meters and Residential Parking

Metered parking is available throughout the business areas of Annapolis. Meter hours are from 10am to 7:30pm Monday thru Saturday and noon to 7:30pm Sunday! Some residential areas have restricted parking to limit non-residents to two hours of parking. So, even if there are no meters, be sure to read the signs and estimate how long your vehicle may remain there. Do not park by yellow or red-lined curb areas. The enforcement by the City Police of meter and other parking regulations is very stringent.

You are best advised to leave your car at your hotel or in a parking lot. Walk, bus, trolley or taxi to the downtown area. Take home good memories, not a parking ticket!
