How difficult is it to get transport to the Fairgrounds from say, an airport hotel?
Hubs and I are coming in May with our extended family, the week AFTER JazzFest. But in pricing flights, I can save close to $250 by coming in Sat May 4th. Our lodging booking doesn't start til Tuesday the 7th, and because of JazzFest all FQ and downtown hotels, etc, are out of our price range. I can get a hotel at the airport for $125/nt.
So my thought was to come in on the Saturday, stay at the airport, and go to the last day of JazzFest on Sunday. We are huge music fans so it would be a dream come true for hubby Dave.
We'd then have Monday to wander quietly as a couple before the rest of the family arrives on Tuesday.
But I'm not sure how transportation would work, and how easy it would be to get a cab or other transport from the airport to the Fairgrounds on Sunday morning, and then especially back again after the last note has played....
