Seeking advice for first time Mayo Clinic visit with toddler (patient)
I am making travel plans to come to Mayo Clinic this August with my 18 month old (he is the patient.) Some specific things I am wondering about travel and lodging:
How difficult is it to find parking at Mayo? I am wondering if it would be easier to stay within walking distance or get an Airbnb.
Do people with babies usually rent a car or just use the shuttles to transport from hotel/lodging to the hospital? I am thinking I will need to rent a car just to have a carseat available.
Is it easier to fly into the Rochester airport? (Seems this is pricier but maybe more convenient)
Any recommendations for lodging (4 days) with an active toddler? He will be having a procedure under anesthesia so I'm keeping that in mind for travel plans. It is hard for me to visualize how this all will work since I have never been to Rochester. I did receive the brochure of the hotels which is helpful, but wondering about the subways/skyways and how convenient that is to get to the hospital. I am from a small town so any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
