Tampa, which sits on a bay on Florida's Gulf Coast, has all the warm-weather advantages expected from southern destinations. The Tampa Convention Center, which features 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, gives groups a taste of the outdoors with 18 waterfront meeting rooms and a 16,000-square-foot terrace event space overlooking the Hillsborough River. Hotels near the Big Guava's convention facility include the 360-room Embassy Suites Downtown Convention Center and the 727-room Tampa Marriott Water Street. After closing ceremonies, thrill-seeking attendees can take on the roller coasters and other adrenaline-inducing rides at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
