Sarasota: The Gateway to the Gulf
Sarasota, located inland from Lido Key/Siesta Key and north of Venice, is rich in culture and arts, including several theaters, an arts district, and science museums.
The Sarasota Bayfront and downtown district are lush with outdoor cafes, antique shops, relaxing spas, award-winning restaurants, and much more. As the mainland for some of the most sought-after barrier islands, Sarasota is the gateway to the Gulf of Mexico.
