Things to do in  Sarasota

Welcome to Sarasota

Florida fun at its finest is on offer in Sarasota, a city on the Gulf Coast that's known for white-sand beaches, outdoor adventures, and artistic attractions. Located south of Tampa, Sarasota was once the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus and is today home to cultural landmarks such as the Ringling Museum of Art. Many of the other things to do in Sarasota are connected to the sand and surf, though, including kayaking excursions, fishing charters, parasailing adventures, and dolphin-spotting tours. However, cycling along Siesta Key at sunset is a Sarasota must.
