Parking and Other Important Information:

The courthouse has a parking garage, which charges $2 an hr or $10 for more than five hours. The parking facility accepts cash and debit/credit, but be sure to bring at least $10 in cash as the machine has been known to fail and ATMs are not in the area. If you are taking public transportation, ride the metro to the Vienna stop on the orange line and transfer to a bus heading towards the courthouse.   Free parking lots can be located at businesses around the Courthouse; however, those spaces are extremely limited and many businesses will tow your car if you are not a patron of their establishment.

PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICES are PERMITTED in the Courthouse.

The Courthouse has a cafe (located on the main floor near the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office) and a cafeteria (located on the ground floor).  Within walking distance from the courthouse you can find Hard Times Cafe, Red Hot & Blue, Panera, and Potbelly’s.
