Welcome to Sarasota Florida
Sarasota Florida looks out onto the warm and dazzling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where the tropical white sand beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. You could easily spend days and weeks strolling over sand dunes and sipping cool drinks under beach cabanas, but you’ll have to tear yourself away because Sarasota, a city south of Tampa, offers so much more. World class arts, cultural and historical attractions inform and inspire, while wild outdoor activities in untouched natural habitats are food for the soul. And speaking of food, there’s plenty of that too!
