The weather was cold and snowy. I wore If parking in the convention center lots, leave your coats in your car. .The walkways are heated and comfortably warm..
Good value even at fun price. BETTER at Goldstar discount.
A good breakfast before you are on your feet walking up and down the aisles is a good idea. Afterwards, restaurants across the street or at Parkway Park Park (on other side of parking garage. TIP: They validate parking.). Pricey, bland food, and drink available at convention center. Starbucks on first level.
$15.00 parking lot across from convention center. Walkway to convention center.
The weather was Wintery. I wore Jeans, t-shirt, flannel shirt over it, COMFORTABLE shoes. .
Snacks available at show. VERY EXPENSIVE! Instead, eat at a MB Financial Park restaurant after show and get parking validated. http://www.rosemont.com/thepark/
$15.00 parking in garage. Arrive early as getting into garage can take awhile. Plenty of parking. Eat at a Parkway Bank Park restaurant after show and get parking validated. Located opposite side of the garage from convention center. http://www.rosemont.com/thepark/

If you want to take your time or take another look at everything, it's better to take in your own water bottle and a sandwich. There is plenty of spaces to sit either while you are watching a dance or listening to a presentation.
Crowded. Give yourself time to look around. Bring a snack. Wear comfy shoes. Relax and enjoy.
Have dinner afterwards in the Rosemont Entertainment District (other side of garage) and get your parking validated.

Parking is expensive- $15. You have to pay at in the parking ramp lobby. Please note there are machines that take cash or credit and some that take only credit cards. At the time we left, the credit-only machines had very short lines.
Rosemont's MB Financial Park is on opposite side of garage. Good restaurants to choose from. Plus they'll validate your parking.
