Things To Do

Immerse Yourself In Sarasota 

Let us help with your area attractions and things to do. As one of the top family vacation destinations in America, Sarasota is renowned for its cultural and environmental amenities. Not only are we home to the #2 beach in the United States as voted by TripAdvisor in 2022, but Sarasota is a mecca for patrons of the arts and has the highest concentration of Zagat® rated restaurants in Florida. It’s no wonder Sarasota was ranked one of the Top 100 Best Places to Visit in Florida in 2022 by US News and World Report. 

Sarasota offers a truly impressive blend of leisure, shopping, remarkable cuisine and popular attractions. As Florida’s cultural capital, you can’t go wrong with our museums, plays, symphony, or Sarasota’s very own opera house.

So sail into a breathtaking sunset, golf on lush green fairways, explore unspoiled fishing waters or just relax and sink your toes into the finest beach sands in the world.

If you’re not grabbing your sunblock already, keep reading about all that Sarasota has to offer.

Sarasota Beaches

With numerous beaches to choose from, the most notable being Siesta Key Beach with its quartz crystal, powdered sugar white sand. For those who prefer to go shelling, try out Lido Key or take a short drive to Venice Beach to hunt for fossilized shark’s teeth.

Area Attractions

From aquarium, to a spring training baseball game, and botanical gardens to airboat tours of gators in their natural habitat, there is something for everyone! Make sure you check out the events calendar for annual traditions including our very own Chalk Festival and the Siesta Key Master Sand Sculpture Contest.


Whether you prefer fine dining, beachfront or lighter fare, Sarasota has the highest concentration of Zagat® rated restaurants in Florida. Our award-winning dining overlooks world-class beaches, and stunning skylines, and fills downtown Sarasota. Many offer outdoor dining that can be enjoyed year-round!

Arts & Culture

The historical John and Mable Ringling Museum of Arts is the state art museum of Florida. These palatial grounds are home to a world-renowned collection of Rubens, the Circus Museum, Ca’d’Zan, Ringling’s Mansion, and Bayfront Gardens. You will also find the historic Asolo Theater on the premises. But that’s not all, Sarasota’s performing arts rival those of much larger cities.

Sports & Outdoor Activities

Voted as 2014’s Best Sport Friendly Vacations Destination by Sports Events Magazine, Sarasota and the surrounding area has over 25 golf courses, a world-class aquatics, and rowing facility, and one of the largest polo clubs in the country! Whether paddle boarding in the Sarasota Bay or running the Legacy Trail, you’re sure to find something that gets your heart racing!


Whatever your shopping preferences are, Sarasota has something to suit your needs. Spend the afternoon in historical St. Armand’s Circle, visit the Ellenton Outlet Mall just 20 minutes North or enjoy our newest addition- the high-end shops of University Town Center (more than 100 stores).
