Theater District Parking
Parking in Theater District
Boston’s theatre district is at the heart of the creative and vibrant theater and arts scene in Boston. Many of the theaters in Boston are located on Boylston Street and Tremont Street, and while the Boston Theater District is small when compared to NYC, many of the theaters in Boston are used to open large shows that are bound for Broadway. If a Boston audience doesn’t like a new show, it may never see the lights of Broadway!
There are over a dozen major venues in the historic downtown theater district and many more stretching as far as Cambridge. The theater season in Boston begins in earnest in the late fall, and runs until June or July of each year.

Boston Theater District Parking Guide
The historic nature of this area means parking can be a challenge. Many of the streets are one-way, the streets themselves are narrow and street parking in Boston’s theater district is almost unheard of. There are several garages in the area, the most convenient of which is the Boston Common Garage; it’s also the most popular, so try to reserve parking ahead of time to ensure you get a spot!
