It's enjoyable to just stroll around the streets in a new destination, but sometimes it's wise to have a plan in place. Grab your travel schedule — we have loads of cool ideas for your upcoming Sarasota holiday.
You'll find yourself surrounded by significant sights, including the Sarasota Jungle Gardens and the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. If you want to get the most out of your stay, also stop by the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and Mote Marine Aquarium.
Would you like to cry, laugh and gasp out loud all in one night? Attend a performance at Sarasota Opera House and immerse yourself in the breathtaking music and intense story lines. There's an excellent range of things to do in this destination. Theatre can challenge our views and asks us to aspire to greater things. Get tickets to a production at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and open your mind to another way of thinking. Still have time on your hands? Put on your finest khakis and pick up your luckiest clubs. If you're eager to get outside for a day out on the green, lock in a tee time at Rolling Green Golf Club.
Take advantage of everything there is to see and do and head home with the best souvenir of all — warm memories of your wonderful holiday!
While there are loads of great things to do in Sarasota, why not start with a Sarasota Inshore Fishing Trip or a VIP luxury day trip to Orlando Walt Disney from Sarasota?
To take a look at a full list of activities, go to our Sarasota things to do page.
Though Sarasota does have 70 accommodation to pick from, it's always good to reserve a room early. Not sure where to begin? Expedia is here to help out with your next cheap holiday or luxury getaway.
If you're someone that can't fall asleep unless they're between 1000 thread count sheets, why not cuddle up in luxury at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (1111 Ritz Carlton Dr) or The Resort at Longboat Key Club (220 Sands Point Road)? If you don't feel like spending such big bucks, why not base yourself somewhere more affordable? Take a look at the Siesta Beach Resorts And Suites (5311 Ocean Blvd) or the Captiva Beach Resort (6772 Sara Sea Circle).

Great location. Comfortable beds. Awesome staff! Very clean and roof top pool and view is amazing. Definitely recommend. Only downside is you have to valet, and if you stay here the entrance is in the back and not well marked.
Perfect location - right on the beach! Complementary beach chairs, towels & cold bottled water was very much appreciated. A shuttle to St. Armands circle was really great. Big garbage cans by the entrance from the beach needs to be empty more often, cleaner stairs area would be nice.
I like the indoor pool and the gym it was clean Some part of the parking lot have no light and grass all over the place
Check In was simple and the staff was very courteous. My daughter needed to use the computer in the lobby and that was very helpful. Breakfast buffet was good. The room was extremely clean! Thank you for a great stay.
This was an extremely beautiful hotel in a great location and the staff was extremely friendly and courteous! I will be staying here again when I come back in September with my wife.
Bentley’s is a great hotel for the money. Always nice and clean. Decent breakfast. I wish the rooms had microwave ovens...
