PARKING AVAILABILITY 

and Access to  Whale Festival  

We like to recommend that you take the trolley and walk. We are 1 block from Santa Fe station.

The closest parking will be at the USS Midway Aircraft Museum entrance on Navy Pier entrance from N. Harbor Drive. The charge is $10 per day.

   North Harbor Drive is under some construction, so be forewarned!
   The following is a list of some of the additional parking options within five or six block walking distance of the  Whale Festival. There are many FREE and/or paid parking locations within this area, they just have to be hunted out and a map is attached to help locate them.
