Where Should You Park?

Posted on

If you find yourself wondering what parking is best when you go out, parking garages or open parking lots, then you should read this article. It will give you some information on parking your car in both of these environments, so you have an easier time deciding which one will work out the best for you. Here are some features you want to know about both a parking garage and an open parking lot.

Parking in a parking garage –

When you go some places, you will have the option to follow one path and go to the open lot or to take another path that takes you into the garage parking structure. Some of the structures have many floors to them, and you will go up and down the levels simply by following the correct lane. When you get to the level you want, you will find a spot and park. Here are some features you'll notice when you park in the parking garage:

  • You have to remember the level and lot you are parked on, or it can take you a long time to find your car.
  • You should avoid parking in a parking garage after dark if you are alone and in a questionable area because they offer more coverage for criminals.
  • Everything you do will echo, so turn down your radio and bring everything down a notch upon entering.
  • Parking in the parking garage will give your car full shade, which means the car will be much cooler in the summer and the interior won't be at risk of heat damage.
  • Sometimes you have to pay a little fee to enter the parking garage.
  • A parking garage can protect your car from other weather conditions like hail and excessive winds.

Parking in the parking lot –

If you have decided to park in the parking lot, then here are some of the things you may notice about the parking lot:

  • Sometimes the wide-open parking lot can be less crowded, making it a lot easier for you to find an available spot to park in.
  • The open parking lot will often be accessible for free, even when you would have to pay for the parking garage.
  • The open parking lot may give you larger parking spots than the parking garage, and therefore, it may be the better option if you are driving a large-sized vehicle.
