We picked Longboat Key because of it’s postcard perfect views, great climate, beautiful beaches, and food that is out of this world.

Is it a beautiful beach, world class speakers for great continuing education, good fellowship? Or perhaps it is fishing, a round of golf, or a relaxing time at the spa. Or maybe it is the opportunity to renew friendships and make new ones. Whatever your choices, Smiles in the Sun in Long Boat Key has the perfect combination.

The Resort at Longboat Key Club is a 5 star property that will allow you to learn, play and relax in an idyllic location. Smiles In The Sun has put together an amazing program of internationally known speakers to bring you the most current information in several disciplines.
