Visit Sarasota: Linda's Guide

I have called "Sweet Home Sarasota" my Home since 1981 and I couldn't be more excited to share tips and recommendations to all who have an urge to visit, and maybe also call this incredible place Home...or their "Home Away from Home"!

Below are my favorites options for places to stay, dining, entertainment, shopping, local attractions, and more!  If you need extra help, or have any questions, please give me a call!  

Where to Stay...
First of all, I would recommend staying in or around Downtown Sarasota - see the area of the map below that is circled. 
Here, you will be in the heart of so much to experience to help grasp the true essence of Sarasota!  This location will also provide the easiest access to all our beautiful Keys, which all vary from each other greatly!

Below is a link to a list of fabulous places to stay in & around Downtown Sarasota!

These options are perfectly located near our gorgeous Marina with the Bayfront park and all that Downtown has to offer with delicious dining, evening entertainment, shopping, Saturday Farmers Markets & MORE!

Where to Eat...
Sarasota's culinary selections are flourishing throughout our area and being a food-enthusiast, I am thrilled!  From German delicacies to juicy burgers to the best seafood dishes - here are some of my absolute favorites!

I've also included some options for "dining with a view", if that is what you are after!!
