The MACC (600 River Street) is a seven-minute walk along the shaded hike-and-bike pathway from the Holiday Inn. The pathway borders the Colorado River and is a city destination for recreation. From the Holiday Inn, head away from the freeway and cross East Avenue to get on the hike-and-bike pathway. Take a right to head west on the pathway with the river on your left. You will cross a small bridge, pass a playscape on your right, and you will pass apartments on your right. You will see the MACC, a large white building in a semi-circle shape with a distinct design, on your right. A stone pathway with bands of color in red, yellow, and black leads you to the MACC from the hike-and-bike pathway.
