Parking options in the Gold Coast
- Secured covered self park garage in a large high-rise. These usually have a doorman and require a garage door opener to get in and out.
- Covered garage with 24/7 valet attendant. This is a really convenient option as it is usually cheaper than the expensive high-rise deeded parking, but great as you can drive up drop off your car and head out as needed right away.
- Uncovered surface lot. Usually a hang tag will be issued to identify that you are a monthly parker at the lot.
- Uncovered unpaved lot. Hang tag also issued to identify the car. Unpaved ground, but super super cheap. Best bargain option in the city as these unpaved areas can cost one fifth of the cost of the area’s most expensive option.
If you have a car and live in the area, you’ll need a monthly parking space hands down. There’s just no escaping it as there are too many street parking restrictions to make not having a monthly parking spot an even remote possibility. One thing around having a spot is to drop your car off in a farther off neighborhood with less restrictive street parking restrictions. That said, no matter where in Chicago you park, you’ll have to keep track of the street sweeping schedule and be aware of the overnight parking ban. While it might seem cool to save some cash and take public transit to and from your free street parking spot, this quickly wheres off. Parking tickets, car damage, and inconvenience and cost of going to and from your car makes you wonder why you don’t have it in a great monthly spot right near your place. Enjoy life in the city and enjoy your car. Monthly parking makes that happen!
