St. Petersburg is on Florida's gulf coast, part of the Tampa Bay area. It is well known for its pleasant weather (“Sunshine City” is its nickname), making it popular for golfing, boating, fishing, beach lounging, and many water sports. Its waterfront parks host the Dali Museum, featuring surrealist art; the Museum of Fine Arts, with a range of ancient to contemporary works; and Mahaffey Theater, home of the Florida Orchestra. There is much to do in the area so please plan to come for the conference and leave time to explore and enjoy the area as well.
