This lovely city on Florida's Gulf Coast brings so much of what the Sunshine State has to offer. With miles of beaches, lots of good places to eat and drink, and great Sarasota hotel deals, what's not to love?
Hit the beach!
Siesta Key has not only been called the best beach in Florida, it's also considered one of the best in the country. The glistening white sugar-like sand and gentle Gulf waters beckon you to spend hours just admiring the scene. You can also get into adrenaline-pumping water sports activities, enjoy the island-style nightlife, then end your day relaxing in one of the hotels on the beach in Sarasota.
Eat and Drink
You can't go wrong with the seafood at Big Water Fish Market. The coffee shops along Stickney Point are mere steps away from the beach and offers coffee and ice cream to accompany a day on the sand. Hotels in Sarasota also offer many dining options, so you'll never suffer from lack of choices.
Culture, Sports, and Nature
Culture, sports, and nature all thrive in this town. Ringling Bros has a circus museum and a live circus to entertain the whole family, while Sarasota Opera offers top-level productions. Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium brings insight into marine life, and Myakka River State Park has the natural beauty of Florida on full display. Stay in one of the hotels near Desoto Speedway for a dose of racing action and outdoors fun in Lake Manatee State Park.
