The parking on the streets around my house is free & unlimited on weekends and limited to 2 hrs on weekdays (7am-8:30pm). There are most often spaces to be found on my block during the day, and while the street gets crowded at night, there is usually something to be found within a block or so.
The closest Metro station is Eastern Market, about 7 blocks away; and Union Station is about a mile away. There are buses that drop-off and pick up a 1/2 block from my house. And there is a City Bike station a block away -- a fun way to get around!
