WHAT WE FOUND
The study looked at all the arenas in the U.S. and found the Spectrum Center had the lowest price of $10 parking near the arena.
When we compared these prices on SpotHero, we found that the $10 parking was at 209 East 5th Street, only 426 feet away from the Spectrum Center, and 306 East 4th Street, only about a quarter-mile away.
We did find cheaper options at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta for $8, however, the parking garage was about a mile away from the arena.
So you can either pay the price of walking or a little more from your wallet.
