Wink Parking near the State Capital

So far, I've only taken the light rail into the city, so I'm clueless about parking in Denver. I'm used to NYC where there are parking garages every block or so. Is that the same in Denver or do I need to plan for where to park more carefully? If so, can anyone recommend a few parking lots/garages near the Capital?

Thanks!

it's a bit of a walk (maybe like 6-7 blocks?) but i work at 13th and broadway and sometimes park at 13th and Cherokee. it's $6/day. it seems like there are a few lots along 14th, but west of broadway.

What would be the best way to get there via public transit? Light rail to the 16th Street trolley?

It just depends on how long you plan to be at the State Capitol. There is a ton of metered street parking on all the surrounding streets and several pay by the hours lots across the street to the east. You can easily find parking within 3 -4 blocks in Capitol Hill, Uptown or the Golden Triangle and walk over to it. Just make sure you read the signs if you don't see meters.

Yeah, that's a good point. There are meters along Lincoln (west side of the street) right at 13th that are 5-hour meters that are frequently vacant, even during the day. The meters along Lincoln between 13th and 14th are frequently vacant too, but I think they are 2-hour?

Thanks for all the info! Does anyone know, if I were to take the F line, what stop would be closest to the Capitol?

There's a garage across the street from the capitol that's across from the denver public library and is almost attached to the art museum. I can't recall the exact price but I don't think it would exceed $6/day. It's pretty convenient and never really full. It's really hard to miss.

Probably 16th and California. You could then take the Mall Shuttle to Civic Center station and walk the 2-3 blocks to the Capitol.

There is a surface lot at 16th and Grant, and another one a block east.

Free parking on 16th Ave (your best bet for lack of meters) stops at Park, but you could park in that area and hop on the 15 to the capitol or just walk the 20minutes if you please.
