Houston Parking Tips:
Parking Downtown is a nightmare but if you truly must you kind find parking at the Hilton Hotel (Crawford St and Dallas), Toyota Tundar Garage (Jackson St and Bell St), Minute Maid Park (Crawford St and Texas) and BBVA Compass Stadium (Texas Ave and Dowling St). If you’re traveling from NRG Stadium to Downtown we recommend you take the Red Line on Main. There are stations located through Main street going from Downtown to NRG Stadium.
