Getting Around - The Skywalk
A view from the atrium looking down the street. Just beyond where the skywalk crosses over is The Ram (that white, barrel-looking thing marks the entrance).
The convention center is another block to the right of the intersection shown. In all, it was like 2-3 blocks between the Embassy Suites, and the con. It was actually faster to take the sidewalks than the skywalk, especially since the skywalk meandered through a very strategically built mall complex. Of course, you didn't have to dodge cars on the higher level, and on the one rainy day we had, it was welcome shelter.
