We attended the "open house" for the performance arts center and have attended some shows. There is not a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are fabulous!! We attend many theaters/performance arts centers and this is the best of them! Tickets are reasonable; we just wish they offered a bigger variety of shows. It is in a convenient... More

Awesome facility for small events - smaller rooms for meetings and breakout sessions. Also large areas to accommodate very large crowds.

Right on the main drag with its back to the bay, this is large, welcoming convention center. There's plenty of parking and many rooms and halls for all kinds of events. In off season, the event has to make arrangements for the snack bar to be open; otherwise, you have to walk several blocks to find something open. The boardwalk... More

Excellent parking and location. We have come for coin show and mineral and gem show, as well as the fireman's expo during convention. This is a great place with a very good layout and location.
