It seems obvious, but the secret is there are some hidden gems in the Collins Park area that few motorists bother to look for. Like the fact that after the Bass Museum of Art is closed, you can park after midnight for free in the small lot on Park Avenue near the gift shop. Most drivers worry they'll get towed, but rest assured you won't. Also hidden are the two public lots on 23rd Street across from the Plum TV offices and AeroBar. Both are small and easily forgotten if it weren't for the public-parking signs. If all else fails, most of the curbside spaces around the museum, library, and Miami City Ballet are available, and thank the parking gods that the public lot between the W South Beach and the Days Inn has reopened.
