WRONG: Do not park on the sidewalk, on a crosswalk, or over curb cuts.
It’s been a minute. Time to update our parking guide.
If you are visiting Hartford or are otherwise not sure how to park when you get here, keep reading. If you’ve ever uttered the phrase “there’s nowhere to park in Hartford and nothing to do when you get there,”

Trying to parallel park on Pratt Street, where there is almost always more demand than supply, can admittedly be a challenge, but you can find a spot anywhere else.

This parking error might not seem like a big deal until you see the front of the car.
