Sarasota Accommodation

When deciding on a place to stay for your escape, you'll be rapt to hear that you have a terrific selection to choose from. Wotif has a whopping 70 accommodations in Sarasota, so you'll have absolutely no dramas bagging an incredible deal.

You'll forget all about your exhausting long-haul flight when you drift into the blissful land of Nod at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (1111 Ritz Carlton Dr) or The Resort at Longboat Key Club (220 Sands Point Road). With beautiful, smooth sheets and divine pillows, you'll definitely sleep like a log. However, if you don't think you'll be spending too much time in bed while you're away, why not check out some accommodation options that are a bit easier on the wallet? The Siesta Beach Resorts And Suites (5311 Ocean Blvd) and the Captiva Beach Resort (6772 Sara Sea Circle) are a couple of places that are highly recommended.

Car Hire in Sarasota

Sometimes the simplest and quickest option is to rent a ride at the terminal. And if you're jetting into Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, you'll have plenty of choices. We recommend Payless and Budget. If you still can't find what you're looking for, try out Thrifty Car Rental and Dollar Rent A Car.

Keen to pick up some wheels in the city centre? The staff at Enterprise (1003 N Washington Blvd) can lend you a hand.

Holidays to Sarasota

Getting lost in an unfamiliar place can be thrilling. But if you'd prefer to make it to Sarasota with a bit of local knowledge up your sleeve, keep on reading.

Sarasota is 380 kilometres southeast of Florida's capital, Tallahassee. You'll also locate it 40 kilometres northwest of Warm Mineral Springs.

With so many cool activities and adventures on offer in the area, it's easy to see why approximately 52 000 people call this area of Southwest Coast Florida home.

Things to do in Sarasota

Life's too short to jealously scroll through snaps of other people's getaways. It's time to get cracking and see what this big old world has to offer.

Jump-start your Sarasota break with a Sarasota Inshore Fishing Trip or a VIP luxury day trip to Orlando Walt Disney from Sarasota.

If you're searching for an adventure that won't run you dry, you're in luck! Sarasota also offers a great variety of free things to see and do:

  • The word "free" puts a smile on everyone's lips. The Marietta Museum of Art and Whimsy offers some intriguing exhibits and displays with no entrance fees.

  • Venture out, have some fun and soak in the surroundings at Nathan Benderson Park.

  • Let your inner history nerd run loose at the Ringling College of Art and Design. This fascinating site is a great place to start learning about the culture and history of the region.

  • Step outside your door and immerse yourself in the local culture in St Armand's Circle. It's a wonderful spot to get some retail therapy too.

  • Enjoy the serene environment at St. Boniface Episcopal Church Labyrinth. This sacred spot is the ideal place to do a little soul-searching amid all those fast-paced sightseeing adventures.

  • Find a cosy spot on Siesta Key Public Beach and Crescent Beach. They're great places to stretch out and watch as the tide rolls in.

  • Slip on your comfiest shoes and take a trip to Sarasota BayWalk. If you're eager for nature and adventure, this is definitely the place to go.

Must-see Sarasota

How about exploring the Sarasota Jungle Gardens and the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens? You'll find them just an easy drive away. You're also not too far from some other noteworthy sights, such as the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and Mote Marine Aquarium. How great is that?

Put on all your finery for a wonderful evening at Sarasota Opera House. But don't end your sightseeing there. Treat your friends to a live performance at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Locate your seats and enjoy the show! Want even more options? Teach the locals a thing or two with a game of golf at Rolling Green Golf Club.

Places to Visit Near Sarasota

Want to live life with zero regrets? Then head down the road and stop by the Salvador Dali Museum. Around 50 kilometres away in St. Petersburg, you'll be thrilled you ticked this landmark off your bucket list.
