Parking in Annapolis
During the Legislative Session: As parking is difficult during session, we encourage you to park in one of the downtown garages or in the Naval Academy Stadium lot. Prices range from $5 to $16 depending on where you park. To get a place in a downtown garage, you must usually be here by 9 a.m. If you are arriving later, you should consider taking the circulator or parking at the Naval Academy Stadium (see below).
Parking at Downtown Garages
If you are coming to a legislative briefing, we would recommend parking at the Gott’s or Whitmore garages. Gott’s Garage fills up more quickly than Whitmore garage, so you may want to try the Whitmore garage first. If you are visiting our office, Hillman’s garage is the closest. Here is a map of the downtown garages. This map includes the addresses of the garages for those of you using navigation systems. http://downtownannapolis.org/_pages/transport/tr_parking.htm
The Circulator and Parking at Garages Just Outside Downtown
There is a free circulator trolley that can pick up people from the garages and drop people off on Church Circle next to the Governor’s Mansion and State House. It operates from 6:30 a.m. to 12 midnight. Just ask the driver which stop is for the State House. See more information at: http://www.annapolis.gov/Government/Departments/Transportation/Circulator.aspx.
Parking at the Naval Academy Stadium
The shuttle buses from the Stadium now cost $2 a ride. Just ask the driver for which stop is for the State House See more information at: http://www.ci.annapolis.md.us/Government/Departments/Transportation/Parking.aspx.
Outside of the Legislative Session: If you are going to be in Annapolis for two hours or less, there is normally ample street parking in the downtown area. Bring quarters for the meters. If you will be here longer than two hours, we recommend parking in one of the garages, as the City of Annapolis does ticket.
Getting Around the Legislative Complex
Getting around the Legislative Complex is easy. Just bring your driver’s license or photo I.D. to get through the security. This map shows you how to get from any of the Garages or shuttle stops to the State House, Senate Office Buildings (marked Senate), and House Office Buildings (marked House). http://downtownannapolis.org/_pages/transport/tr_parking.htm
