I have to thank my co-worker for alerting me to this tip. Actually, I am surprised I didn't figure this out sooner.
I have shared on the blog that parking can be quite a hassle in the city. My worst experience was driving around one Saturday evening for an hour and a half trying to find a place to park the car. It is also quite common for me to have to ride the bus from where I eventually do park the car just to get back to my apartment.
Well, here is the pearl of wisdom that my co-worker discovered. We both live within two blocks of Fort Mason. Fort Mason has a large parking lot that is FREE from 5pm to 8am weekdays and FREE on Saturday and Sunday!
So on Friday evening when I was returning home around midnight from a friends birthday party, it dawned on me that I should not waste time driving around my neighborhood trying to find parking when I can just park at Fort Mason and be in bed under the covers within ten minutes.
Truthfully, this is going to revolutionize my decisions on whether or not I choose to drive places.
There is only one potential problem, I remember it being discussed that the city may start to charge to park at Fort Mason. Until that day comes, I am putting it in park!
