Title: Area shopping
Post by: Lynn Broderick on September 24, 2017, 07:40:00 PM
Is anyone familiar with the area, to give suggestions on how close grocery stores and such will be to the site?  I'm betting we'll forget at least a few things that we'll have to run out for.

Thanks, Lynn

I was wondering about places to grab a quick bite if the concession stand food gets old.  So what I did was use google maps and put in the address for Eden Park.  Then switched to satellite view and kept zooming out to see what was in the vicinity.   Using that method I found a Kroger about 2.5 miles south of the arena.

That's good to hear!-

Someone in my group said they were searching for restaurants and stuff and it seemed like we are going to be in the middle of nowhere.

There are several restaurants on Hiway 36 about 15 minutes west of Eden Park.  Not all 4 star of course  :D  But there's a McDonald's, Starbucks, Waffle House, Bob Evans, and Cracker Barrel.  They are just past the big Pilot and Flying J that Chris has mentioned.

That looks to be 25 minutes away...  Probably pretty close to where a lot of people are staying if they aren't RVing - but not close to actual Eden Park.
