I just moved to Franklin/Hickory. I love the location, but parking has been a nightmare and it's only been 1 week. I commute to Alameda for work using my car and search for parking nightly. Being a female, I feel safer with a garage so I'll be parking at the Performance Arts Center starting April 1 (they only start the first of the month). Until then, I've been parking around McAllister/Buchanan, but do not feel safe walking to my apartment when I park at night.
Any suggestions on safe places with easy parking where I do not need a permit and can park more than 2 hours over the weekend? I've looked at Craigslist, garages, parking permits- any feedback/suggestions for those who are familiar with the area are helpful.
