To help guests during peak season, Seaside will offer a new parking option this summer.

Visitors will be able to drive into Central Square and park on their own OR they can have a valet service park their car immediately, rather than search for a parking space.

A valet podium will be centrally located in front of the ATM Kiosk in Central Square between The Art of Simple and Sundog Books. Visitors choosing to use the valet service will receive two hours COMPLIMENTARY with a validated ticket and a merchant receipt. With no validation, the fee is only $5 per vehicle for the first two hours, and $5 for every two hours thereafter.
