Sarasota activities

Florida's best-kept secret, Sarasota is an idyllic beachfront community perfectly situated on the Gulf Coast. From its cool turquoise waters, to the white sands of its beaches and the brilliant colors of its flora in bloom, Sarasota is always a vivid and vibrant destination. However, Sarasota's natural beauty is only the beginning.

Sarasota is also Florida's cultural capital - home to the state art museum - the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, a variety of theaters, galleries, a ballet, opera, symphony and more. Both Longboat Key and Sarasota offer world-class dining, shopping and nightlife, including St. Armandís Circle, with its fabulous boutiques.

For the sports-minded, golf and tennis abound, as well as professional baseball spring training, the Sarasota Kennel Club & Poker Casino, boating and fishing. The city of Tampa, only an hour away by car, offers its own attractions including Busch Gardens, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rays, Lightning and more. A world of fun awaits you in nearby Orlando, including Walt Disney World, Sea World, Epcot Center and more.
