The Center on the Grove is a fun place to hang, and lots of activities go on here. People watching, concerts, food, and a fun water pad for kids. The area is changing a lot down there so many new things to see.

This is a smaller convention center, but fully adequate for our meetings. They are in construction to enlarge it. Had some of the best convention food I have ever experienced (been to many centers, big and small). Their food was better than most restaurants. Had...More
