Just off the circle from the convention center are two boardwalks that take you over marshes and out to the bay to see wildlife and birds. We even saw an alligator. Fun to see the bay side of the island.

The parking setup is terrible and disorganized. Small spaces and very few close to the building. The building itself has several different sized halls.

We went to the Market that was held once each month. Vendors come from all over. I got Larimar jewelry which was much cheaper than in the Caribbean.

We had a great time at the flea market there a few months ago. But we were so disappointed to learn that the convention center only allows 490 people inside for annual kite convention, so we could not buy tickets to see it! Can't the management return to the "powers that be" and reassess the safety of this huge building... More

Plenty of venders and well organized operation. Plenty of parking and food vendors if you are hungry. Never miss market days as always new products available.

Terrible just becasue we did not find it :((( The Convention Center will lead you to a trail that will give you a view of the bay. Otherwise, there's not much to see.
