Free Parking at Boston Meters on Valentine's Day

The city has declared all parking meters will be free on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013.

After a hard weekend of snow and shoveling, the city of Boston decided to show its residents and businesses a little love this week.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, Mayor Thomas Menino announced on Wednesday that all parking meters in the city of Boston would be free all day on Valentine's Day.

Menino said the move is an effort to help businesses "make up for lost time" due to this past weekend's blizzard.  

“Whether you’re showering yourself, a friend or a special someone with love this Valentine’s Day, we want to make it as easy as possible for residents and visitors to spend some time and money at Boston businesses and restaurants tomorrow,” Mayor Menino said. “Get out there and share the love!”

Well, you heard him. When you're taking you're sweetie out for a nice lunch at L'Espalier or a walk through the Public Garden, dedicate that extra moment when you'd usually be hunting around for quarters to your loved one.
