When you think Florida, you probably think beaches. The Sarasota-Bradenton Area offers beaches galore and so much more.
Sarasota and Bradenton area are two very distinct destinations that make up the Southwest Florida Gulf Coast region. Some of the state's best vacation spots are found here. From out-of-the way island villages and sophisticated arts to superb culinary experiences and year-round events.
Calling all beach aficionado's: Sure, one great beach is nice, but seven are way better. The coastline is dotted with seven separate islands, each with their own personality, and offering up a version of the true Florida getaway dream.
Sarasota's top-rated Siesta Key, offers near-perfect sand, combined with a quaint and quirky beach-town atmosphere. In the middle of the key, you'll find Crescent beach with fewer people and an even more laid back vibe. Shell collectors and those looking for additional solitude head for Turtle Beach, while Lido Key offers a tranquil beachside park with nature trails and great picnic spots.
Culture, shopping and dining: It all comes easy here. Sarasota-Bradenton's Ringling Museum of Art, the State Art Museum of Florida, houses one of the world's largest collections of Baroque art, while the Sarasota Opera and the Sarasota Ballet offer a thrilling, evolving list of ongoing events. Shopping ranges from breezy, beachside boutiques to the exciting University Town Center, Florida's newest luxury mall. Incredible dining is only a bite away, with a plethora of outstanding seaside restaurants, as well as mainland dining ranked some of the best in the state.
