Sarasota, Florida is known for its art and beaches. This vacation destination consists of several Keys, which offer gorgeous white sand beaches, and a cosmopolitan city that dominates the cultural scene of southwest Florida. Art is a big part of Sarasota, both in performances and art shows/displays. So while you hit the beach, you can also get a cultural boost of art and music to complement your tan.
On mainland Sarasota, you can get both the city life and a view of the sea. The Ringling Museum of Art is the most popular destination downtown, featuring art pieces from John Ringling's personal collection. The downtown area itself is full of restaurants and shops right on the Bay so you can wander with a great view and great food. Asolo Theater, Florida West Coast Symphony, Sarasota Opera, and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall are the places to go for gold star entertainment. For a full-on beach experience, which is a main draw of Sarasota, head out to one of Sarasota's three Keys. Siesta Key Beach has been ranked among the best beaches in the world, so it is a must visit for beachgoers, even if just for a day trip.
