is there free parking nearby? are all city streets metered?
There are a couple of free parking lots behind the Cathedral. You just need to drive around the block to get behind it. No metered street parking in this area of the city. Just don't go at Mass time or they will be filled.
We parked in the parking lot, they also have metered parking on the street.
