I'm I close to the convention?
« on: April 26, 2009, 11:38:00 AM »

OK. First I read the google map for directions on how to get to the convention.

At first I felt lost.Yesterday was my second try and I think I found it.

I drove for 2 hours looking for the streets(I saw the clock so yeah, I was somewhat lost)>_>.

Anyway,I saw a building that said convention so I think I found it.It had a giant Duck on top and had a big field next to it.

So is that the place the Fanimecon is held or am close?I know the street Almaden blv so I think I'm close. I heard its close to SJSU and I did see a big field with Baseball players practicing and big signs saying San Jose Giants. So was the place with the giant duck it or am I way of? Thank You

You are close...the building with the giant Duck is the Children's Museum.  The convention center is two blocks east (think of driving towards the hills) of the museum.  The biggest landmarks that will help you are the Marriott and Hilton hotels.  The convention center is nestled between them.  So if you know Almaden Blvd, get familiar with the San Carlos cross street.

You've gone way off course is you see the baseball field with the San Jose Giants sign. That is way South of downtown, that's right across the street from Spartan Stadium (2-3 miles or so away from the convention center).

Hope this helps.

Here's a photo of the main entrance of the convention center:

You'll find the Marriott on the left of it and the Hilton on the right.
