What cool events can I attend in the US next month?

I'm involved with an organization at my university that has funds for members to travel to events that are relevant to their interests or fields of study. I'd like to take advantage of this before I graduate in May. So, I'm looking for conferences/events/etc. that are occurring in the United States (no passport) during the month of April. The organization has a pretty large amount of funds left, so let's assume that cost is not an issue. (I mean, nothing crazy. Let's keep it under a few thousand). My interests are many and varied. I'm majoring in geography, so I like maps. I like design, architecture, journalism, web stuff, arts, literature, history, and food. Seriously, I can get interested in anything. Ideally, this event would allow some flexibility so that I can explore whatever place it's in. [more inside]

iOS development convention recommendations?

I'm an iOS developer, and I'm trying to schedule and budget for technical conferences next year. I've been to WWDC a few times, and will likely try to get tickets again in 2014. I'll probably also attend a CocoaConf. Other than that, can anyone recommend iOS-related conferences or classes they've found valuable and fun. In the US or Canada is preferable, but Europe is not out of the question.

Any Word on "21st Century Schools?"

Teachermefi: I'm a middle school special ed teacher and my district wants to send me to this conference: Designing 21st Century Schools. Does anyone have any experience with this organization? I hate taking time away from my class to doodle, but it's supported by Edutopia, George Lucas' educational foundation and seems possibly worthwhile.

What cool conferences have you been to?

What cool conferences have you been to? Last year for vacation, I went to the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) annual general meeting and WorldCon. I found out about SIGGRAPH too late to go. A cool conference is where there's plenty of new insight and ideas...oh yes and plenty of nifty loot/freebies! Suggestions for non-techie conferences welcome.
