Sarasota is the perfect destination on Florida’s west coast for those who love the sunshine but want to avoid the crowds in big cities like Miami and Orlando. You can always head to Tampa and visit one of the amusement parks or casinos on your trip, but you can always come back to relax in your quiet Sarasota timeshare at the end of the day.
When you buy a Sarasota timeshare, you will be close to the downtown area and your favorite attractions. The units include amenities such as a washer and a dryer as well as cooking supplies in the kitchen. You might opt for one that has a hot tub in the bathroom or a balcony for relaxing.
Pirates & Rum Festival and More
This Florida city is home to the Pirates & Rum Festival near the beginning of October. While you can leave your eye patch and parrot at home, this festival gives you the chance to mix and mingle with people who love the rich taste of rum and the fun pirate lifestyle. The Free Fall Festival in September can remind you that the seasons change in the south, even if the leaves don't change. There are also loads of events held by local museums as well as activities on the beach, including volleyball tournaments and fishing contests.
Best Things to Do in Sarasota
Siesta Key beach is one of the city's top beaches and a popular destination for timeshare owners. You can sit close to the lifeguard stand and rest assured that your kids are safe or venture off the beaten path as you go swimming and try water sports.
Museum lovers can visit spots that include the Bishop Museum of Science and Nature, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and The Ringling, which is the State Art Museum of Florida. The Mote Marine Library and Aquarium appeals to animal and marine lovers of all ages because of the animals and displays housed there.
Time of Year to Visit
As Sarasota sits right on the water, it's important that you think about the storms that can roll through on your trip. Afternoon rain is very common in July and August, while quite a bit of rain also falls in June and September, though September is when there are fewer crowds due to the kids heading back to school. You may want to head to your Sarasota timeshare in the late fall or the early winter because most attractions cost less money and the temperatures are still mild.
