We will be staying a few blocks away from the beach, so we will drive to the beach (since we have to carry chairs, umbrellas, etc.). What is the parking situation this upcoming week? Will that be a problem?Submitted by Dave S, Paramus NJ on August 26, 2019
Things have started to slow down in OC, so there should be less people in town. However, the availability of side street parking near the beach varies a lot from on block to another, so while you likely can find parking (especially if you get there by 9:30am), it is impossible to predict how tough it will be to find a spot.View all answers to this question (3) »

I am coming to OC for Bike Fest and have 2 parking places at my condo rental. Is parking the trailer allowed in my designated spot? The rental company is saying yes as long as it fits in the spot and is not over sized. Please advise as I don't want to be fined.Submitted by Dianne F, Niskayuna NY on August 21, 2019
I would call the OC Police for the answer. They can be reached at 410-723-6600. If the parking space is on private property, you should be fine though. Public parking lot and street parking of trailers is restricted, not private lots.View all answers to this question (3) »
