Local Attractions

Sarasota is known as the Cultural Coast of Florida and home to 10 Theaters, 80 Art Galleries, acclaimed Symphony Orchestra, and prestigious Ballet and Opera companies.  Many of the local Cultural Arts Centers such as John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Powel Crosley Estate, Ca’ d Zan Mansion, Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, and the Sarasota Opera House are minutes from the hotel.

 

Sarasota is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the State of Florida.  Siesta Key, Lido Key, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island all feature soft, sun-bleached white sands that fade into the crystal blue sparking waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  Sunsets glow with vibrant colors nightly and often give the gift of the “Green Flash” as the sun fades into the beautiful Gulf.

 

Sarasota Bay and other intracoastal waterways provide a variety of watersports enjoyment including: kayaking, snorkeling, diving, fishing, and some of the best boating in Florida.

 

For the outdoor enthusiasts, Sarasota offers daily experiences at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, Sarasota Bayside, Jungle Gardens, and the Bishop Museum of Science and Nature.
