SpotHero helps you find and book parking spots in several cities.
Finding parking is one of the most miserable aspects of living in Los Angeles, or any major city in which you need a car to get around. If I would have known about SpotHero earlier, I would have saved myself a lot of frustration in searching for a place to park. SpotHero, a website and app that makes it easy to find and book parking spots in cities around the US, has been around since 2011. The site is still going strong, and the company describes itself as the #1 downloaded parking reservation app (which means there are others, which I also did not know about).
The concept of SpotHero is simple: you search an address or venue, and choose whether you want to find monthly or hourly parking. Then you look at all the available parking spots on a map, choose which one you want to book, pay for it, and go park there. There are plenty of people out there who probably would refuse to ever pay for parking in their city. I understand that feeling. But the ease in which SpotHero allows you to find and book spots makes it worth it if you want a sense of security. Finding a parking spot is terrible, but SpotHero makes it easy.
