Looking to take a break from the Anna Maria beaches? Take a trip over to Sarasota and take in the beautiful views that this area has to offer. There are tons of things to see and do in Sarasota from the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens to the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art or if you have kids maybe you can spend some time at the fountains at the Bayfront Park. Sarasota is definitely a place to spend some time if you are vacationing to Anna Maria.
Check out this video of our very own Lisa and her daughter Savanna at the fountains at Bayfront Park:
The Bayfront Park in Sarasota is more than a splash pad. The views are beautiful and it’s a great way to take a walk and escape the beach for an hour or two. Here is another video of just one of the views at the Bayfront Park in Downtown Sarasota:
If you are looking for another place to take in scenery, you can always head over to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in downtown Sarasota. With over 15 acres of housing, 12 buildings (including 7 greenhouses) you will have plenty to look at and explore!
