Sarasota Florida USA Holidays

Famous Gulf Coast beach resort

Sarasota is a famous Gulf Coast beach resort in the south west of Florida, 55 miles south of Tampa. It is a relaxed attractive resort with a distinctly upmarket feel and is known as the cultural capital of west Florida. Sarasota can offer outstanding classical and jazz concerts, theatre, ballet and opera. Holidays here also feature some terrific museums, antiques shops and art galleries. The beaches in Sarasota are considered some of the finest public beaches in the USA. A special feature of the resort is the proximity of beautiful beaches on small islands or keys connected to the mainland by causeways and bridges; superb spots to enjoy lovely holiday sunsets. Your holiday could also include visits to Siesta Key, a quiet green family resort with miles of gorgeous sand, Longboat Key, a quiet stylish island and the smaller islands of Bird Key and St Armands Key.
