Sarasota

Sarasota is a city in Sarasota County on the southwestern coast of the U.S. Get outdoors at Honeymoon Island State Park and Parasailing & Paragliding. Step off the beaten path and head to Waterskiing & Jetskiing and Robinson Nature Preserve. Get out of town with these interesting Sarasota side-trips: North Jetty Beach (in Casey Key), Nokomis Beach (in Nokomis) and Fred Howard Park (in Tarpon Springs). There's still lots to do: stroll through Coquina Beach, kick back and relax at Turtle Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at South Lido Park, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
