Next year I might splurge and park in the lot at the mall. Since I work in downtown Indianapolis, I have a space in a garage at the corner of New Jersey and Market Streets. I pay $105 a month for it, which thankfully comes out of pre-tax dollars thanks to a benefit I have through work. This year and last year, I parked there. Problem is that this lot is about a mile away from the convention center. It can be tiring to walk all that distance after a long day at the convention.
So I may put some extra money in my parking fund and just grab a spot at the mall for the 4 days of the convention next year.
