“"The Village"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

When locals talk about Siesta Key Village, it is just "The Village." Low-key, fun, great places to eat and shop. It can be crazy busy during "season," - the traffic terrible, but we love the place for its real Florida beach appeal - not hoity-toity. You can find just about any kind of food and drink; most places great for kids, too. And of course, THE BEACH. I'm just glad we live here and can enjoy this area all year 'round!

“Nice sort of Locals place there on the Key”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

When you get to Sarasota the chances are high that you're going for there beach. If not you're probably there on a business trip, and who really goes there for work ???
So, after a nice walk north down the beach why not tuck into this village area for a cup of coffee and a scone, or shoot the moon and enjoy breakfast or even lunch at one of the many places just off the beach. This is much smarter than wasting money on a hotdog there at the concession stand associated to this beach, one of the top rated beaches in the USofA.
April 14th weekend the Siesta Key Village celebrates their annual Art Festival, yet another reason to check them out.
So, put your shirt back ou and wander on down, you'll certainly find something worth your time there.
Enjoy, Salida1048

“Wonderful local restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love the Siesta Key Village because it is full of locally owned and managed restaurants. No chains here. (except a Subway, but who goes there on vacation??) Most restaurants have outdoor seating which is also a big plus in the beautiful Florida weather.

“Crystal sands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

There is something very magical about this area. I have visited Siesta Key area twice. Last year at Xmas time and this year in March. The shops are great and this beach is breathtaking. I cannot get enough of this area.
