Sarasota and the Surrounding Keys Offer a Variety of Activities

Sarasota, FL is a great, centralized location to find a beach vacation rental. While Sarasota is an amazing place to visit on its own, it is most famous for the many keys, or islands, that surround it; offering a variety of amazing amenities and attractions for any traveller.

Siesta Key

The most famous of these keys is Siesta Key, which is located only about ten minutes from mainland Sarasota. In both 2009 and 2010, Siesta Key was voted as having the second best beach in the United States according to Dr Beach. Then in 2015, Siesta Key Beach won TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice top-ranked beach. This is because the beach features the world’s finest white sand, made of 99% quartz. Because of the quartz content, it stays cool and soft even in the summer.

Siesta Key features three different beaches with many different activities for its vacationers. Crescent Beach features the Point of Rocks, where you can participate in snorkelling and diving. Siesta Key Beach has a famous weekly drum circle on Sundays and holds famous events like May’s World Class Sand Sculpting Competition every year.

Other South Florida Keys

The other keys, while not as famous, hold just as many activities and can be less crowded for a more private and low-key trip. You can visit Longboat Key, Lido Key or St. Armands Key for first-class tennis and golf facilities, as well as for chartered boat or kayak tours.

But you don’t have to travel to one of the keys to have a great time in the Sarasota area – there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained in Sarasota itself. If you are a fan of the arts, there are countless art galleries and museums in the area for you to peruse. Once you’ve worked up an appetite during any of your daily activities, you can find a restaurant that fits your taste. With everything from little delis to extravagant steakhouses, you can pick a new restaurant every day of the week and really expand your tastes.
