Best Free, Long-term Parking
The absolute best long-term parking lot is the little used “Hood Avenue” lot. Marked as Courthouse Parking, this lot on the northwest corner of Commercial Avenue and Palmetto Street (and bounded by Hood Avenue on the west, hence the name) is rarely used and features free parking 24×7. It also allows trailer parking (such as RV’s, etc.) on weekends. And it is only a block or so north of the Sanford Information Center (230 E. 1st St.), making it easy to find.
Free On-street Parking
There is also plenty of on-street parking in Historic Downtown Sanford, and lots of overflow parking in the nearby residential areas as well. Some parking areas have time limits so plan accordingly. Be kind and careful not to block sidewalks, through traffic, and driveways.
