Plenty of parking in Downtown Roanoke

TOWER GARAGE - only 187 steps from Book No Further's door (152 if you cut through the grass). That's 1 minute 28 seconds. New paint and LED lighting - It's TOTALLY lost it's creepy,1980's slasher-movie vibe.    Directional signing, though, is a bit wanting, so

... follow these directions:

  • From Salem Ave turn on Market St toward the railroad tracks (beside Billy's)
  • Turn left on Norfolk
  • Turn left into the garage. 

HOW to get in out of the Tower Garage for free Saturday 8 am - 4 pm and all day Sunday

  • Take ticket
  • Find a spot
  • Leave before 4 pm on Saturday or 9 pm on Sunday
