Way better than a rental car

Take Sarasota at your own speed

Known for its tropical beaches and rich culture, Sarasota is a great destination for family vacations or roadtrippers on a budget. In this artsy beach town, you can relax on cool white sands, drive by breathtaking mansions, and tour museums and galleries to your heart’s content.

In Sarasota, life can be as fast or slow-paced as you make it. Want to spend a whole day tanning on the white quartz sand? Go for it. Want to travel far and wide in search of the best sunsets in the country? Sounds fantastic.

Sarasota favorites

Fill up the fuel tank, hit up the beaches, and bask in Sarasota sunsets.

Siesta Key Beach

The fine white sand on Siesta Key Beach comes from the Appalachian Mountains and is estimated to be millions of years old. But you don’t have to be a geology major to appreciate this beautiful quartz sand that remains cool even on hot days.

Lido Key Beach

Another unmissable beach is Lido Key: your destination for sunset cruises, dolphin watching, and deep sea fishing. Near the beach, you’ll find high-class resorts, chic shops, and fresh-as-it-gets seafood.

John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art

Florida’s official state art museum is renowned not only for its wide collection of paintings, sculptures, and antiquities, but for its Italian style architecture and gardens. While you’re there, check out Ca' d'Zan: the impressive mansion home of circus king John Ringling.

Hit the road

Fancy a trip to Disney World? Or maybe you’re searching for more quirky, off-beat adventures like multicultural Ybor City. Either way, there’s plenty to explore in the area around Sarasota. The town is within hours of iconic cities like Tampa, Miami, and Orlando, but a driver who goes along the coastline or through nearby state parks will find hidden gems most tourists never see, even in the summer months. So take it at your own pace, and enjoy!

Way better than a rental car

Walt Disney World

Ready to get soaked on Splash Mountain and take a photo with Mickey? Disney’s massive theme park is less than two hours from Sarasota and well worth a visit. Of course, if you want to see the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios, we recommend more than just a day trip.

Ybor City

Ybor City, about an hour away, is a multicultural hub of art, food, and fun. While you’re in the neighborhood, don’t forget to grab a Cubano sandwich, which made its first appearance in the country right here. From Ybor City, you can also explore the larger Tampa area.

Clearwater Beach

If you haven’t yet had your fill of pristine beaches, head an hour and a half north to Clearwater. Once you’ve finished vegging on the beach and swimming in the incredibly clear water, take a tour of celebrity homes, then return to Pier 60 for one of the country’s most iconic sunsets.

Best Sarasota driving roads

Purple squiggle

Sunshine Skyway

The longest cable-stayed concrete bridge in the world makes for an exhilarating drive. More than 21,000 feet long, the bridge offers breathtaking views of the sea and skyline. For a beach-side view with birdwatching, pull over at the rest stop on the bridge’s north side.

Bay Shore Road

For a charming drive through Sarasota’s past, take Bay Shore Road from the Ringling Art Museum down to Indian College Road. Along the way, you’ll pass Sarasota Jungle Gardens and Ringling College, as well as old buildings and historic mansions.

Myakka River State Park

Just outside of Sarasota, Myakka River State Park offers a windy road through canopied woods along the river. Drive slowly and watch out for gators and wild hogs. If you’re in the mood for a hike or bike ride, there are plenty of opportunities to pull off and follow trails into the woods.
