Rain in the forecast :(

Scheduled to arrive tomorrow, forecast says rain, today, tomorrow & Friday. Staying at Longboat Key Club & Resort, any ideas on what to do when it's raining will be greatly appreciated. We are active baby boomers, meeting friends driving down from Orlando. No children will be with us. We are flying in from Chicago.

It is not likely to rain all day, so there will be periods of sun mixed in. Mote Aquarium is great. Also, Ringling Museum, Selby Gardens, St. Armand's Circle.

First of all, we rarely have full days of rain. It generally clears up at some point. Even less frequent is several rainy days in a row.

That being said, the Ringling Museum is very cool, and large, and has a circus museum as well as an estate to explore. Mote Marine aquarium is inside, although theres a building that is a block away, and stuff outside to see, as well as the Mote boat.

Others will respond with more ideas.....have fun!

Minimal rain in the forecast. By guess is you won't see any at all.
