Parking near Granary Burying Ground
I would like to visit the Granary Burying Ground. I will be coming to Boston by car. What kind of parking is available within walking distance of the Granary? Thanks. Marie
Susan's reply: Hi Marie - Although there are several good parking lots in this area, my recommendation to anything heading to this general area is the large parking garage under Boston Common because it almost always has space available, is spacious rather than cramped, and is easy to get in and out of without having to squeeze your way along some of Boston's narrower streets.
Boston Common Garage, located directly under Boston Common, is quite convenient to Granary Burying Ground, as well as the other nearby Freedom Trail sites located in the historic Downtown Boston area.
In addition to being easy to get in and out of, Boston Common Garage's rates are also lower than many other garages in this area, especially on the weekend when a flat rate of $11 applies.
After you park and take the elevator up to the parking kiosk at ground level (Boston Common), it's a good idea to look around and find something near the kiosk that will help you remember the location. There are 4 parking kiosks on the Common and they all look alike. The garage is rather large, so if you remember which one you exited when you arrived, you'll find your car faster when you return. And ok course, also remember which floor you parked on, and the letter of the aisle.
Have a great time in Boston!
