Located in the southwest coast of Florida, Sarasota holidays offer a laid-back atmosphere with opportunity for plenty of exploration. From recreational watersports to awe-inspiring excursions and famous surrounding islands – this slice of the USA is sure to impress.

 

With palm-lined beaches that overlook the Gulf of Mexico, holidays to Sarasota promise paradise. Known as the Cultural Coast of Florida, this part of the west coast is home to a blend of artists, music, theatre and galleries, serving up something interesting for everyone who visits - the Sarasota Opera, Florida Studio Theater, Asolo Rep Theater and the Sarasota Ballet are a few popular haunts here.

 

One of the star attractions however is Siesta Key; just a short distance from Downtown Sarasota, Siesta Key is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico and is proud owner of one of the most beautiful beaches in the nation – making a fantastic day trip to take the kids on. Similarly, you’ve got Longboat Key and Lido Key, each easily reached from the town and well worth a day trip to. Equally, a fun day out with the kids can be had at Myakka River State Park with an abundance of entertainment and experiences available for nature lovers, from boat tours and camping to mountain biking, with cafes, restaurants and playgrounds too. In the evening, explore the resort’s waterfront tiki bars, live music and rum taverns Downtown, or if you’re in the Keys, Siesta Key Village is where to head when the sun sets.

Exciting Day Trips

Explore exactly what Sarasota and its surroundings has to offer on one of the many day trips available. History lovers can take a trip to Edison & Ford Winter Estates, boasting over 20 acres of picturesque botanical gardens with 1,700 plants, historic buildings including Henry Ford’s house and Thomas Edison’s house, a museum featuring some of Edison’s inventions and more. The Estates are an hour and 30-minute journey from Sarasota – but worth it if you’re interested. The Florida Aquarium and LEGOLAND Florida make a great day out for the kids, or why not hop on the Key West Express and float to the southernmost point in the state where you can jump off and explore the area?
