That's true. I just looked up some maps to get a feel for the city and the transit system and it looks like there won't be any problems getting to and from the festival grounds. And I have no problem taking the L, it's just that 2 hours a day spent commuting is too much for us. I do love rapid transit, though. During my trips to NYC I always buy unlimited use fare cards, and here in Vancouver I take the SkyTrain as much as possible. If we end up staying outside the downtown core it will definitely be near an L station on a line that runs all night.
So, as I feared when I bought the tickets months ago, it looks like I won't be able to attend Lolla this year due to visa issues. Boo! If any of you need tickets, or know someone else that does, I'm selling a pair at face value ($215 x 2 = $430.) It looks like only day passes ($90 each) are available on their site now. Gutted that I can't go, but hopefully someone can take advantage! PM me if you're interested and we'll talk details.
