WHAT TO DO:
• MAKE A SPLASH: Enjoy great fun for the whole family with a number of wonderful waterways, beautiful beaches, bountiful bays, and of course the famous white quartz sand beaches in Siesta Beach! You can also paddle through exotic mangrove tunnels or hire a fishing guide to spend your days catching grouper, snapper and Spanish mackerel.
• GO WILD! Get up-close and personal with marine and jungle life at local attractions! Learn about the underwater ecosystem and feel as close as ever to dolphins, stingrays, sea turtles and manatees at the Mote Aquarium. Befriend pink flamingoes or an infamous Florida alligator at the Jungle Gardens. And see lions, tigers and bears (oh, my!) at the Big Cat Habitat.
• GOLF! Enjoy a great afternoon playing golf at one of Sarasota's many courses. Bobby Jones is the only 45-hole public facility, but tee times at other clubs, such as University Park Country Club or The Resort at Longboat Key Club can be arranged.
THINGS TO SEE...
• DO THE 'RINGLING'! The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is a 66-acre estate where circus legend John Ringling and his wife, Mable, collected art and built a house on a grand scale. The museum features galleries of classic art as well as a museum dedicated to the Ringling Brothers Circus. The grounds themselves are a wonderful botanical display and there's nothing more relaxing than to view of the bay from the marble patio.
• SEE THE GARDENS! Stop and smell the flowers at The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. This research and education center boasts thousands of colorful and exotic plants and includes more than 6,000 orchids alone. It's no surprise it has 'planted' itself in the top ten ranking of America's best botanical gardens by Country Living Gardner Magazine.
• EXPERIENCE THE THEATER! The Sarasota Opera is one of many wonderful performing arts venues, garnering international attention with its Masterwork Revival Series. And be sure to catch a performance by the Sarasota Ballet, as it is rapidly becoming one of the best in the world of its size.
