It's a good idea to rent a car in Sarasota so you can easily drive to the beach and around town to see all the city has to offer. When you're not soaking up the sun at Long Boat Key or Siesta Key, Sarasota has some great rainy day activities as well. Try the Mote Marine Laboratory to get up close and personal with the marine life at the aquarium, or visit the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art for a more high-minded cultural experience. The city is also home to many examples of Italian-inspired architecture, thanks to the tastes of its most influential residents, the Ringling Brothers of circus fame.
Book your hotel in Sarasota at the right time of year, and you can enjoy local festivals and special events that you wouldn't otherwise get to experience. Sarasota hotel packages can be your ticket to the Sarasota Film Festival in April or the Ringling International Arts Festival in October. The Sarasota Chalk Festival also takes place each fall, a major international celebration of sidewalk artists that's organized around a new theme each year. Their amazing works don't last long, so Sarasota vacations in the autumn are truly one-of-a-kind.
