    Parking lots in downtown’s village charge between $5 and $20 for your vehicle. Try and get to Laguna Beach early as parking fills up early during summer. Street parking can be hard to find near the beaches during summer, especially in the afternoons and on weekends. There is coin and credit card operated meters.  You can park for free in residential areas, but pay attention to posted restrictions, or you could be towed or ticketed. This is the cheapest option although you risk begrudging the residents. If you are trying to get downtown another good place to park is the district parking lot just across from Laguna Beach High School.  If you can’t find parking downtown, drive to the north or south ends of the town and ride the bus.
