Dali Museum - Art History
Wednesday, October 5, 2022
an afternoon visit to the Dali Museum allows time for touring the museum with their architecturally significant building and gift shop. You can enjoy an early dinner-on-your-own at their renowned cafe either under an umbrella on their patio or inside. Look for the fun photo-opportunities on their grounds.

Tampa Aquarium - Education and Conservation
Saturday, October 8, 2022 an afternoon visit to the Tampa Aquarium allows time for lunch-on-your-own prior to the Aquarium timed entry. Before entering the aquarium, walk one block to Greenwise Market and eat on their small porch. This upscale Public's-owned market opened in 2022 and offers a sushi station, fresh fired pizzas, a build your own bowl station, a massive salad bar, a full deli, and plenty of grab-and-go (or sit there). Enjoy tasty and affordable choices.

At 5-minutes prior museum entry-time, gather to enter the aquarium as a group. The aquarium focuses on education and conservation. Touch a jelly fish, learn about their successful coral spawning program, and relax with great water views. Food and beverages are available on-your-own.

After the visit, jump back on our shuttle to return to the hotel, or linger in the area. If you stay-on-your own, find Sparkman Wharf near the aquarium with light food, casual shopping, people watching, and outdoor music on Friday and Saturday nights.  Restaurants operate from shipping containers and a beer garden has a nice selection.  Want to strike with some upscale bowling?  Splitsville at Sparkman's Wharf has bowling, ping pong, billiards, and food to include their popular fried chicken.

Catch a ride to Armature Works which hosts an innovative food hall where you can order food and sit outside, along with full service, sit down restaurants (reservations recommended.) The conference co-chairs rate this highly. After eating, you might stroll along the Riverwalk.

Dress for the weather and wear your walking shoes.
