Every Friday, I feature a fun and budget-friendly option in the Greater Boston area. The “Feature Friday” is typically mentioned on the Cheap Eats list, Free Things to Do in Boston, or Discount Attractions. However, there’s so much budget-friendly ideas on my pages, I thought it would be fun to feature something budget-friendly and different each week. Also, each Feature Friday is something I have personal experience with or took advantage of recently! Enjoy!

Boston Parking and budget-friendly doesn’t always fall in the same sentence, especially if you can’t find a free street spot. I like to have a parking back up when ever possible, and SpotHero is a perfect parking back up for me.

SpotHero is a mobile parking app that allows you to find, book, and pay for parking all on the app. You do not need cash to pay for a parking garage in Boston since your credit card info is on the app.

Not all parking garages in Boston participate, but it’s a great way to figure out current parking rates for the time frame you want and to find cheap parking options.

If you haven’t tried SpotHero before, you can register though my referral link for a free $5 credit. I’ve parked for a rate as low as $8 before for a few hours, so just $3 for parking for the evening after the promo code!

Have you used SpotHero before? What is your favorite way to get cheap parking in Boston?
