OK , as mentioned in the thread from my original post, I have pretty much decided to come down for the big event. I have booked a room at the Mobile Marriott, sunday - wednesday.
I haven't done the flight yet, and am hoping somebody from Mobile can re-assure me.
I would MUCH prefer to have gotten a room downtown but prices and availibility won't allow that. Many people have suggested that I would need to rent a car but given that I hope to spend at least a little time with a beer in my hand ;-), I don't think that's a good idea.
So I'll ask again: Is it completely far-fetched to think I can have a good time using taxis to get around? Please advise. If for some bizarre reason Mobile does not have taxis, I'll have to make alternate vacation plans soon.
