Continental breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be provided free at the conference for everyone who registered in advance and requested lunch.
Persons staying at the Quality Inn or Marriot Residence Inn can walk or drive to the Harrisonburg Crossing shopping center. There are several affordable local and chain restaurants in this center, including Franco's (pizza and Italian food in a comfortably gracious atmosphere), Xenia (Mediterranean food), Chipotle(burritos), Panera Bread (sandwiches, soups and baked goods), and a Starbucks inside the Barnes and Noble. Lunch or dinner at any of these restaurants could be bought for under $15.
For more local flavor, the Little Grill Collective at 621 North Main offers home-cooked vegetarian and non-vegetarian favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. An large number of restaurants offering many different styles and costs of food can be found at Court Square and downtown (where Route 33 intersects Main Street) environs.
We recommend the Quality Inn , (formerly the Jameson) or the Marriot Residence lnn. When making a reservation, be sure to request the state goverment rate of about $80 per night. You may give Elizabeth Brown's contact information (at sidebar) if they ask for JMU authentication of your attendance.
For local flavour, a charming bed-and-breakfast located between the historic downtown and the university is the Joshua Wilton House.
