Beautiful Beaches at Sarasota...

Rolling white-sand beaches and sparkling azure waters combine with a sophistication and charm to make Sarasota the gem of Florida’s Gulf Coast. The endless array of activities and the exhilarating mixture of attractions, restaurants, shopping, and accommodations are a sure fit for any traveler.

Relax at a four-star resort or a quaint sea-side inn, explore master works of art, catch a round of golf, stroll through world-class shopping, canoe through unspoiled waterways lined with mangrove, dine on a bay front cruise, or just dig your feet in the sand and bask in the glow of an evening Gulf sunset, whatever your pleasure.

Sarasota is known for its restaurants, and their extensive menus of flavors is sure to satisfy. Rub elbows with locals while downing cold brews and munching big juicy burgers in the '50s feel of open-air diners. Amish restaurants serve heaping portions of comfort food, and French bakeries tempt with delicate pastries. Elegant dining is always in vogue, and the region overflows in award winners famous in gourmet circles. Seafood reigns supreme and there's no better taste in the world than Sarasota's delicacy -- Florida stone crab claws plunged into dipping sauces.

There are many outdoor activities and attractions to visit. Kids of all ages love getting up close and personal with sea critters at Mote Aquarium or the flocks of shrimp-pink flamingos and entertaining reptile and bird shows at Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Relive local history at Historic Spanish Point with its 4,000-year-old ancient Indian settlement. Or lose yourself in the world-class Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, a wonderland of tropical plants and over 6,000 orchids. Visit The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Crowley Museum and Nature Center, plus more parks and history museums.

For those that enjoy fishing and boating, enjoy a chartered fishing tour, a Florida Everglade experience and more.

Love to shop? Well we have it all here! Explore the uniqueness of St. Armands Circle with its collection of upscale shops and specialty stores. Downtown Sarasota offers small-town Americana on Main Street, while the art galleries on Palm Avenue remind you of New York and L.A. Turn the corner onto Pineapple Avenue and you'll find fine antiques to true 1950s Florida kitsch. A little further south into Venice and you'll be standing among shops that look out onto one of the best-planned downtowns in America. If you like your shopping action packed, enjoy the variety of several indoor malls or the bargain bonanzas at the nearby outlet mall.
