Sarasota offers its visitors and residents a variety of recreational and cultural opportunities. The beautiful beaches, like Siesta Key Beach and Longboat Key Beach, the breathtaking sunsets, amazing flora and wildlife are a perfect backdrop to a day or evening of enjoyment. Take in the open air venues such as the downtown market and informal concerts. Enjoy a volleyball competition on the beach, or cheer from courtside at a championship tennis match on Longboat Key. Or perhaps an evening enjoying a concert at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center then strolling downtown to one of the many fine restaurants to top off your night is more your style.
