Map of Free Parking
Most of the spots in Downtown Key West are metered. But some are free. To locate them you can use the SpotAngels map before navigating to your desired area.
The map updates in real-time, so simply type in the address you’re parking near, the time you expect to be there, and your duration. The spots where you can legally park will appear on the map along with their prices. The green spots are the ones that are free charge!
Pro tip: Some of the metered spots (in blue) might be free of charge as well if you happen to park outside of the metered hours 😉
Key West Parking Rules:
Parking meter regulations are enforced 7 days per week.
Key West City offers some Free spots in the neighborhoods of Old Town, but be aware many of the spots are marked Residential Only and visitors are not permitted to park in them.
Vehicles must be moved before the 72 hours period ends
Unfortunately, Key West does not offer free parking in metered areas on Holidays
