We are planning on attending the Discover Card/Bud Light/Goody's Powders/Goo-Goo Clusters/Fan Zone/Beach Blanket Bingo/Pep Rally event on Saturday.

Anyone have any tips for parking around there? It's been many years since I was there, but I recall it to be quite tight for parking.

Thanks in advance!

The other north-south streets were busy, and even cruising around the side streets was time consuming. We managed to park in a city lot, of which there are a number, though each was rather modest in size; we hit several "dry wells" before finding a spot...and this was with no BCS NC game going on!

I seem to recall that they had public transportation, but have no clue where it connects to--probably something goes up and down Collins towards Bal Harbour.
