I usually look on a map where some place is before going. I generally know where there is parking/garages and how far it takes to walk if I need to.
If you are living in the actual city, make sure to get a garage space! Street parking can be found in most areas but your car will look like swiss cheese after a couple of months. The term is "parking by braille" and most city residents do it.
