You’ll have access to one of the world’s great beaches. Siesta Key Beach, which was included in Dr. Beaches’ Top 10 “Best Beaches in America” in 2007 & 2008, is a don’t miss experience. While beach activities like parasailing, snorkeling and sailing are popular pastimes, away from the sands, cultural attractions are big draws in Sarasota. A great family outing is the John and Mable Ringling Estate, a Venetian-inspired mansion along Sarasota Bay featuring an art museum, circus museum, a Circus Ring of Fame and the Flying Trapeze and The Flying Fantasy Circus. When it’s time to shop and dine, head to St. Armands Circle on Lido Key, a classy area with a European charm featuring bistros with outdoor dining and a plethora of boutiques, art galleries, specialty shops and restaurants. Popular outdoor activities in the Sarasota area include kayaking at Myakka River State Park, playing golf at top-notch layouts like the Arnold Palmer designed Legacy Golf Club at Lakewood Ranch and the Scottish links-style Tatum Ridge Golf Links and hiking the newly opened Legacy Trail, which stretches more than 12 miles from Sarasota to Venice.
