Insiders Guide to Sarasota

Sarasota could be the best vacation destination in Florida. If you ever considered a visit to the Gulf Coast area, you may have been looking for tourist information about Tampa Bay or Fort Myers, but the insiders advice is to go half way between them to Sarasota. Sarasota has several barrier islands such as Siesta Key, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island. The white sand beach stretches for miles along Siesta Key - perfect for romantic strolls on the shore, picnics on the beach, and splashes of fun in the warm gentle waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

When visiting Sarasota, insiders like to stay at the rental condos on Siesta Key. It's the perfect spot for a relaxed peaceful vacation on the beach. From there you can easily visit the local attractions, such as Mote Aquarium (with manatees), St. Armands Circle for upscale restaurants and shopping, countless marinas and museums, free exhibitions of the Lippizan Stallion training sessions, and tailgating (yes - tailgating!) at the Sarasota Polo Grounds. Great experiences!

Whether you're looking for a romantic escape, worry-free family vacation, or warm sunshine all winter long, you can find the best lodging and best beach vacation in Sarasota.
