Leave yourself enough time for parking. On a busy weekend it can take 30 minutes to find a place.
On a Sunday, the meters are free!
but if no street parking is available you might want to consider the following:
1) Closest parking lot is on the North side of College st. Betweeen Lake St. and the RR crossing. Kiosk payment.
2) A parking lot with less stress on it is at the bottom of Maple st. 10 minutes walk to the Marina. Pay to lot attendant.
3) In a really busy weekend the next option is to park at the parking garage on Cherry St. (Near Macy's).
Finding the dock/pier/slip#55.
At the absolute end of College St, pass the RR crossing there is a round about; take any of it's sides and continue walking west towards the red roof boathouse. Walk throught the boathouse and turn right twice. The marking "55" is written on a small pad on the dock. It is easier to identify the boat with its name "LET'S GO SAILING" written on the side towards stern. If the boat is not there, we are probably on our way in from another cruise.
We are looking forward to sail with you soon.
