Check Out the Local Bar Scene
One of the top activities to do during your stay in Sarasota, Florida is to check out the local bar scene. There is no shortage of watering holes and restaurants to frequent during your stay here, as the locals, tourists, and everyone loves getting carefully crafted cocktails, ice cold beer, and yummy non-alcoholic beverages.
First on our list of the best watering holes in Sarasota is the Office Bar SRQ on Ringling Boulevard. The Office Bar is close to the comedy theater, making it the ideal place to stop for a strong cocktail after coughing all night long at a comedy gig. Head here to enjoy two levels of fun, mingling with one another, and dancing the night away.
Another cool spot to head to during your time in Sarasota is The Shamrock on Ringling. Located just a few doors down from our first bar stop, this is the ideal place to hang out, chat with your pals, watch a Premier League match, and pretend like you are in Ireland or the UK! Have a nice full pint of Guinness, play a game of darts against your friends, and cheer on Liverpool on one of the many televisions.
If you can’t get enough of going out and having a few drinks, Sharky’s on the Pier is the next spot that you MUST check out. This hip spot on Harbor Drive is over 30 years old and has stayed popular today due to its coastal vibe, laid-back feel, and tiki bar ambiance. We can’t recommend this place enough, as it has local live music, a fishing pier to watch the local fishermen cast their lines, and tasty pina colada options that will keep you satisfied all night long.
The last bar that is an absolute must visit during your stay in Sarasota is The Gator Club on Main Street. Located right in the heart of Sarasota, this bustling bar is well-known among tourists and locals alike for its great nightlife. Head here if you want to experience a Floridian club and dance the night away after sipping on a glass of wine from their massive 500-bottle selection!
Bring Your Kids to the Aquarium!
If you come to Sarasota during a rainy day, the Mote Marine Laboratory Aquarium is an entertaining and educational afternoon inside! Head here on Ken Thompson Parkway to check out the marine wildlife, learn about the local animals, and bring your children to one of the educational programs.
After its inception in the early 1950s as a laboratory, this institution has since developed into a cool museum and aquarium that is fun for locals and tourists. Learn more about estuaries, marine life in the Sarasota area, and international animals.
Check Out the Ca’ d’Zan Mansion
It might be a hard name to read off a piece of paper, but ask any local where this sweet tourist spot is and they will be able to point you in the right direction. This infamous mansion was the winter home of the infamous carnival founders, the Ringlings. Today you can head here and tour their luxurious home that was finished in the early 1920s. Marvel at the incredible architecture and the belongings of this well-known family who created the Ringling Circus.
Spend an Afternoon at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens
One fun thing to do during a sunny day with the kids is to head to the botanical gardens on South Palm Avenue. We love heading here if you are tired of the crowded beaches and restaurants to get some fresh air and learn about the local flowers and wildlife.
The seven-acre garden space is great for couples, solo travelers, and families who want to marvel at the beautiful floral displays and learn about the property. Plus, you can rest assured that your children will never be bored during your afternoon here! You can bring them around to gaze at the thousands of species of plants, read a few books in the research library, and gaze at the plants in the greenhouses.
