Tourists flock to the beach to enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf and beautiful white sands. If sunbathing’s not your thing, the beach remains an ideal destination for a scenic and tranquil stroll, while the waters are perfectly suited to paddle-boarding, parasailing and a host of other watersports. Charter sea fishing is another popular pursuit in the area. Turtle Beach Campground is one of the few Florida beaches you can actually camp on, which makes for a fantastic night. Meanwhile, a stroll along Caspersen Beach might be all it takes to find out why locals call this the “Shark Tooth Capital of the World”. As well as picturesque beaches, Sarasota is also home to a variety of parks and gardens. The Sarasota Jungle Gardens are a popular choice with tourists, not least because of the stunning wildlife on display. The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and Oscar Scherer State Park are also great places to while away an afternoon. Whichever one you choose, you’ll see plenty of birdwatchers along the way. One of the city’s primary tourist attractions is the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. The former home of the world-famous Ringling family, the museum offers one of the world’s best collections of circus art and artifacts. Visitors to the gothic-style mansion will find all the fun of the fair (and much more) within these four walls. sarasota floridaOther popular attractions in Sarasota include the South Florida Museum, the Sarasota Classic Car Museum, Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, Sarasota Opera House, and the Historic Spanish Point. All offer a host of delights and, more importantly perhaps, are accompanied by an easy-going ambiance. The city streets also house a compendium of amenities and attractions for visitors to take advantage of. From gourmet cuisine to street food, there are plenty of places to eat, while cafés, bars and nightclubs aren’t hard to find. Health spas and outdoor yoga groups offer the chance to unwind in style, while a host of golf courses – those Florida staples – can be booked. Visitors arriving in March can catch the Baltimore Orioles baseball club during Spring Training at Ed Smith Stadium, while an evening at the dog races can be fun. Sarasota proves to be a year round holiday destination, although visitors traveling during hurricane season (June-November) should keep an eye on weather forecasts. Most tourists visit the city in the summer months.
