Let’s face it, as parents, we spend a lot of time in the car driving here and there. And it’s inevitable that at some point our little sidekicks will fall asleep while doing so. Instead of circling the block a million times or sitting in the grocery store parking lot, read on for our list of 10 awesome places (with seriously fantastic views!) to park while your tot catches some zzzz’s.

Pier 70

There really is no shortage of sights to see along the waterfront. This is an eye-catching place to people watch, take in the water views, watch the trains go by, and so much more. Rain or shine, you won’t find a better place to park downtown while your wee one slumbers.
