About Sarasota, Arts & Culture....
There's no need to stay on the beach to enjoy all that Sarasota has to offer. After all, no matter where you stay the beaches are only minutes away. The mainland is home to many of the attractions and activities that add depth and character to Sarasota vacations.
Off the islands, Sarasota is defined by a rich and varied arts scene that belies the size of the city. There's the famous John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, featuring an enormous selection of paintings -- including one of the biggest collections of Rubens in the world. There's the vibrant gallery scene showcasing Sarasota's talented local artists, as well as visiting collections from artists around the world. And we haven't even started on live performances.
Opera in the historic Sarasota Opera House. The Sarasota Ballet and Sarasota Orchestra. National touring shows in the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. And three different theater companies all within a mile of each other.
Enjoying the outdoors....
Of course Beaches ! Siesta Key - #1 beach in the US, Lido Key. Longboat Key.

Sarasota's natural beauty has made it an international golf destination, with dozens of courses in the area designed by some of the biggest names in the sport.
Bike along the many trails in the area. Play Tennis. Take in a day, dinner or sunset boat cruise from Sarasota's bay front.
Kayak around the mangroves. Look for Manatees, Dolphins, Pelicans and all of the bird life that call it home here.
Fish.
Turtle watch nesting.
