Must-Visit Attractions and Things to Do
Sarasota’s combination of urban experiences, fine dining, and natural attractions make it a popular Florida destination that draws visitors from all over the world. White-sand beaches, vibrant street art, and winding mangrove tunnels are just a few of the amazing things to see on a tour. Spot manatees and dolphins on a kayak or SUP tour, or better yet, take to Sarasota Bay on a tiki boat cruise! Back on land, don’t miss a chance to tour the city by trolley and see a different side of the area.
You don’t have to be a beachgoer to love a trip to Sarasota (but it doesn’t hurt!). Apart from pristine beaches (even one where sea turtles like to nest), Sarasota is a diverse city where you can have unique foodie experiences, see over 50 street sculptures and murals, and even uncover the dark side of the city on a Sarasota ghost tour. Enjoy views of the glamorous oceanfront mansions, go shopping in quaint boutiques, and be sure to order some seafood at a waterfront restaurant – you won’t be disappointed.
Of course, if you are looking for outdoor tours and activities, there are so many things to do and ways to have fun in the sun in Sarasota. Launch a stand-up paddleboard or kayak at one of the area’s many beaches or float into the twisting mangrove tunnels and experience the biodiversity of this incredible ecosystem. Boat tours and tiki cruises are other options for spending time on the water, swimming at sandbars, and visiting nearby keys.
