Sarasota is a city in Sarasota County on the southwestern coast of the U.S. Get out of town with these interesting Sarasota side-trips: Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (in Tampa), Clearwater (Murielle Winery & Clearwater Beach) and St. Petersburg (Craftsman House Gallery, Imagine Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, test your team's savvy at Escape Rooms Unlocked, buy something for everyone on your list at St. Armands Circle, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

For photos, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Sarasota holiday planner.
