Lido Key with teenagers?

We are coming to Lido Key with two teenaged girls in July. What type of activities entertainment will they enjoy? Is the area safe for them to explore some on their own? How is shelling adn fishing in the are?

If they like water sports I'm sure they will be happy.

Fishing is great. Shelling is great.

There are water actvities on Lido, but there are much more on Siesta.

What are their interests? We have museums, parks, fishing, kayaking, jet skis and of course shopping on St. Armands Circle.

The area is as safe as any. Good judgement is always important no matter where you are.

Thanks

We are coming in July 22 and staying at the Sarosota Sands. Is it an okay place. The pictures look okay and it is on the beach.

They have a website www.sarasotasands.com.

Don't know anything about it other than it is a condo rental and many items are considered extras.

There are opinions about Sarasota Sands on different forums in the Sarasota area.

Website I gave you was incomplete:

www.Sarasotasandsresort.com I think is correct.

If you need restaurant/activity info let me know!

Lido key is great place to visit. The beach is not as popular as Siesta, so it is not as crowed, and great place to pick up shells.. St. Armands Circle is right there and there is over 100 shops and resturants there. Mote Marine is just a mile away, as well.
