Parking in Seattle/Washington

Maybe I'm crazy, but does anyone ever drive in to Seattle and if so know any good places to park.

Last time I took the Lotus out was to Bellevue and someone thought that it was a good idea to spit all over the car.. now I don't want to park it anywhere expect at home. Of course this makes it hard to justify driving it, if all I can do is go home again.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Where in Bellevue did you park it? I'd park there any day over Seattle.

This was at the high school. I was there for a Christmas Barbershop show. Did not expect anyone messing with the car coming out of that show.. Also lost a center cap, but to be fair, it could have fallen off on the drive.

Yeah I'd avoid schools, full of crazy kids and grumpy adults. I tend to park in downtown Bellevue, have yet to run into any issues.

I was going to say the same thing. A Lotus barely stands out in the sea of Porsches and BMWs in Bellevue.

The rich people in Seattle decided they wanted their own city and built Bellevue.

I drive the lotus to Seattle all the time and park on the street wherever I can find a spot. Never had a single issue. If you are military or have DoD id, park on the coast guard base.

Yes no issue for me either. Yes eastside is safer since you blend better. Schools have smart ass punks and jealous adults.
