Where To Park In Washington D.C. During 4th of July Weekend

What better way to celebrate Independence Day than in our nation’s capital. Fireworks on the National Mall begin at 9:00pm at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. Immediately following the fireworks, areas along Independence Avenue between the Lincoln Memorial and World War II Memorial will be closed for safety checks related to the fireworks launch site.

To make the most of the festivities, reserve parking in advance and arrive early. Here are some of our best deals throughout the city.
