How to get to Sarasota?

Getting There

Flying to Sarasota

The city is served by Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport, which is located on the border of Manatee and Sarasota counties. The quickest and easiest way to get to your Sarasota vacation home from the airport is with a taxi. Sarasota includes the mainland as well as Longboat Key, Lido Key, and Siesta Key - three islands connected by scenic causeways.

Driving to Sarasota

Enjoy a road trip from Miami to Sarasota, a distance of about 240 miles. The drive time may be between 4 to 5 hours, depending on the number of stopovers that you make along the way.

From Miami, head to West Palm Beach through the Everglades/Alligator Alley, which is about 70 miles away. A halfway stopover can be spent at the vibrant Pompano Beach with its idyllic coastline. From the West Palm Beach, take the US-1 route towards the North Palm Beach. This stretch is about 7 miles long, and it will take you about 14 minutes to complete if you drive non-stop.

Once you reach the North Palm Beach, proceed along the Beeline Highway (710) taking a northwest bearing to Okeechobee. You can stop and stretch before turning west to Arcadia on 70, then 72 west. Along this route, you’ll pass the Myakka River State Park, a lovely place to stop over as well before heading to Sarasota. Cruising along this route gives you a scenic insight into Florida’s agricultural heritage.
