The "Day Pass" is recommended for some of our properties that have metered on-street parking. This is a paper which allows all day/night parking at meters without hourly payment and also allows access to city garages. The Day Pass can be purchased at the Visitors Information Center or at Parking Services. For other general parking info including city garage locations, handicap parking resources, differences in the hours enforced for meters based on neighborhood please check this the city parking information site

The daily run times for free ferry are here. This is the little green boat that goes from River Street to Hutchison Island (where the Convention Center and the Westin Hotel are).
We get a lot of questions about whether the tap water is safe to drink. The short answer is yes. The city has the information online and this is the 2017 detailed report regarding source and safety. Restaurants in town are serving this water and any fountain sodas, etc are made with it so drinking tap water in your rental is equivalent to that.
You can use a credit card to pay for hourly parking, just type in the space number painted on the spot you use. Please note this app covers all of the new numbered meter spots which have credit card kiosks on the block but it will not work on the remaining old fashioned coin meters that have not yet been upgraded, sorry for the inconvenience but those old fashioned meters still require coins or the day pass
