Parking in West Hollywood is a bitch. The valet services and lots are expensive, the metered spaces are hard to find and only available for up to two hours, many of the city lots garages aren’t all that convenient, and the city’s parking fines are many and exorbitant.
So hurray for Thrillist, whose Jeff Miller and Niva Norrell Smith spent a week driving around WeHo to chronicle the parking situation. What they’ve produced is a great series of maps that call out your best parking options on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and weekdays. They also note some scams. The maps are printable and should be in the glove compartment of every WeHo resident and visitor’s car. As of this morning, they will be in ours.
