Parking: Hi All.
I took the liberty of calling the parking garage that Jane recommended (thanks Jane), the information found on their site is accurate, parking during the weekend for each 24 hour period is $5.00 and there is a special weekend rate, Friday after 5pm to Monday 9am, $5.00, I'm pretty sure that is what the guy said, either way, check out the site..it sure beats paying $25 PER DAY at the hotel, plus it's close, convenient, open 24 hours. Just thought I'd let you know!
