Things to Do and See

Sarasota's historic Palm Avenue and Saint Armands Circle are reminiscent of Europe, with beautiful buildings, restaurants, and indie boutiques. Siesta Key Beach is one of the city's most popular beaches and has been rated among the most beautiful beaches on Earth thanks to its 99% pure crystal quartz sand. It features a cookout area where you can make your own barbeque. Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach, and Lido Beach are excellent options too.

Nature lovers should catch an animal show at Sarasota Jungle Gardens, home to rare and exotic species plus beautiful plant life. Follow this up with some award-winning artisan rum at the Siesta Key distillery. For fresh fruit, veggies, meats, and cheese, stop by the Sarasota Farmers' Market and pick a few goodies to snack on back at your Sarasota vacation rental.

The city's arts scene has to be seen to be believed. Palm Avenue's First Friday Art Walks features free art installations, gallery openings, food, and great music. Sarasota's undisputed pride is the Ringling Museum of Art. This houses the Circus Museum, where you can discover rare handbills, circus props, parade wagons, wardrobes, and posters. It also houses 21 galleries of European paintings, works from legends such as Benjamin West, Marcel Duchamp, Diego Velázquez, and casts of original statues by Michelangelo. The 66-acre Ringling estate also includes Mable’s Rose Garden, the Cà d’Zan Mansion and the Historic Asolo Theater.

Sarasota's other artsy attractions include the Museum Of Asian Art, South Florida Museum, Art Center Sarasota, and Sarasota Classic Car Museum.
