It was a toss up for us to go to Selby's or to another spot. We are SO glad we chose Selby's. What a beautiful collection of well cared for and rare specimens. I'm not what you'd call a real nature nut but this was a gem of a spot. Located right on the bay, it's picturesque setting was classic old Florida at it's best. Even my 15 yr old son had a good time (just had to cut him lose with a camera). Well worth the fee and time spent. Before we knew it, 3 hours had passed. If we ever visit Sarasota again, we will return.
