Sarasota or Naples in June

We are planning an 8 or 9 day stay on the Gulf coast in June. We are a couple with a 3 year old daughter. We like beaches, but also like other activites, see nature, go walking etc. We also like decent restaurants, not necessarily fine dining. Can't decide between Sarasota/Siesta Key and Naples. Looking at spending around $100 per night for accommodation. Would like to be within walking distance of shopping/restaurants and near, but not necessary to be on the beach. Any ideas? Thanks

Naples is a lovely and elegant town with

good restautants and shopping. However, it is somewhat expensive and the beach is not wide at all.

Sarasota/SK has a beautiful beach and is a great family place. Most of the condo apartment rentals have a weekly minimun stay.

Sarasota is a great town with many cultural events and a variety of places to eat.

You should be able to find rooms in your price range, but they probably will not be directly on the beach, even in the offseason.

Check out the Sarasota website. There are quite a few condo a small apartments that should be good for a family.

We stayed at both places last year. Both were equally good. Naples is arguably more upmarket than Sarasota. Do you research on this site to get a feel for both areas.

Our 3 yr old had no complaints with either!

Not much help!... but the difference is down to personal taste as well as obvious things such as ease of access from airport (Tampa v Miami), accommodation choice, local sightseeing options, etc, etc

Thank you for your replies - we have decided on Lido Key. We will also take a day trip to Naples as it sounds lovely.
