A stop for ice cream at Big Olafs or the cinnamon sugar donuts at Mini donuts is a nice treat for old and young alike. The shops are sort of what you would expect. Beach attire, drinking marguerita's, eating nachos a good... More

Siesta Key is very interesting and definitely worth a trip. Traffic is always (in season) very heavy so be patient. Lots of cute shops, restaurants and a great ice cream shop.

Easy to get there from the beach using the "free" transportation listed at the visitor desk. (only need to tip the driver). Cute shops for tourists. Several places for meals and/or ice cream. Glad we didn't try to drive here due to limited parking.

Lots of shops and local eateries. Not as snooty and pricey as St. Armands. You won't find dogs all over the place here, like you will at St. Armands. Much nicer in the village. Parking can be an issue during busy times.

Clustered together are some world class restaurants...and beach bar snack shacks....a myriad of shops for souvenirs. And access to a world class beach. With recent parking uogrades, this is a must see area of Sarasota.

We went here in search of a nice place to eat with a view. There is no place overlooking the water. The menus we looked at were pretty plain and very overpriced. We won't return.

Love this place, life at an easy going pace. Nothing is a trouble. Just down the road from the beautiful white sandy beach.plenty of shops selling affordable items such as cheap shells to very expensive swimwear - something for everyone. Shh don't tell everyone, we don't want this place invading.....

Lots of good eats, low cost shopping i.e. T shirts, junk, ice cream, people watching etc. An afternoon stroll, evening fun.
