Hi there. I'm new here. Just found out about the convention and I'm interested in going but would like more info.
Is it worth it? (Yeah, I know I'm asking a rather biased group). I'd be travelling from Virginia so this isn't a tiny expense but I'd love the chance to meet some of the actors and just have a fun weekend. Not sure what to expect though.
Is it too late? I see posts from last year talking about booking rooms. If I can't find a room at the Westin then I will likely pass. I've never been to Chicago and don't really feel comfortable travelling around a town I don't know. Especially a town known for a high crime rate. Yeah, that's probably the main factor giving me some pause.
I'm really not a seasoned traveler. It's been a few decades since I've left my hometown but this is the first time in a long time that I've had the opportunity and I'd like to take advantage of it if I can.
