Downtown Businesses

If you can get yourself to the eastern end of Patton Avenue where it meets Haywood Street, the area around there is extremely walkable and has many interesting places to eat and shop. Most places are vegetarian/vegan friendly but there are also a couple of specialty restaurants.

There are several parking decks around downtown. The one next to the Civic Center (Haywood Street near 240) is a pretty convenient place to park and walk from. Enter on Rankin Street. The first hour is free and every subsequent hour is $0.50.

Other parking decks have different prices.

Metered parking appears to be free after 18:00.
