Jeep Invasion

We went to the Jeep Invasion at the Convention Center. It was well managed, very clean and very cool inside. There were ample clean bathrooms and a nice seating area.

I've attended the Department of Maryland American Legion Convention for the last 3 years and this places blows me away every time. The meeting rooms are large, there is a nice view of the bay from the second floor, there is plenty of parking on site.

This was my first time at a convention here and I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. There was lots of room and the main hall is a modern convention hall. I especially liked "Dockside" hall as it has a really nice view out onto the bay. Food was decent for a convention center but the lines were a... More
