Got back from the 2013 convention site late Saturday. The International Edsel meet was a few miles away, so we checked things out in our spare time.
There is a lot of stuff to see and do. The town is small enough that you can find your way around it rather quickly and the learning curve is quick.
The exit from the Indiana Toll Road actually is right next to the parking lots of the two host hotels.
Of course, in South Bend there is the national Studebaker museum, and if you want to go, a smaller Hudson museum thirty or so miles away. There are also historic homes, restaurants and buildings to see.
Notre Dame is right across the street from the host hotels.
We are planning the Rendevous, of course, for Thursday afternoon.
