My sister and I gained a lot of knowledge in this nice facility. It was convenient to be able to get some great tasting Starbucks coffee while there.

I have been to a number of events at the Convention Center, the most recent being Jurassic Quest. The venue is very nice and there are shops/restaurants attached to the Convention Center. There is plenty of parking.

Excellent meeting place for conventions. Excellent displays on periodic basis such as "History of the English Speaking Bible". Just a classy place to visit.
