If you’ve come to Siesta Key to relax with your feet up or indulge in non-stop adventure, you’ll notice quickly you’ve come to the right place. There is no way to mess this up. You will have fun. Your family will have fun. You will be back.
The fact is, with so much to do and see in the Sarasota area, even the locals struggle to keep up with all the available action. After doing some research, I’ve decided that no vacation could possibly be long enough to partake in all there is to do here…but it sure is fun to try!
Let’s start with the obvious: Siesta Key is a tropical paradise that boasts the world’s finest, whitest sands – of course, you will end up on the beach! At Siesta Beach, which boasts the best sand, you will find the perfect spot to lay your towel down and set up the umbrella. If you head to Turtle Beach you will find the perfect oceanside venue for volleyball, horseshoes, jogging, boating, and fishing. While at Crescent Beach you will find a more secluded piece of heaven, perhaps the perfect place for a romantic sunset stroll.
If, by chance, you find yourself a little tired of the beach life there’s plenty to do ‘off-water’. Visitors and locals alike love to spend time on some of the worlds most beautiful golf courses in the area or can be caught sporting at Sarasota Polo Club.
Of course, for the bolder, more adventurous members of your party there is always the zip lining ropes course fun at TreeUmph – keep in mind this is not for the faint of heart!
Night Time Frolicking
Just because the sun goes down doesn’t mean it’s time to go back to Peppertree Bay and call it a day. You must visit the Village in Siesta Key to eat at one of the many restaurants or for some bar hopping. If you’re looking to impress go further into Venice for a cultured night of music at the Venice Symphony.
But if a vacation opera isn’t on your bucket list, you may be more excited to go to McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre in Sarasota ( currently featuring a burlesque show! ).
No matter your style, vacationers have some pretty great options down here. And whether you want to plan ahead and pack in all the action you can, or play it by ear and adventure as you go, Siesta Key will be here waiting for you!
