The Weather in Sarasota

By and large, the seasons are good to travelers in Sarasota, though reading through the reviews at Orbitz.com may help people decide when to schedule certain events. The year-round temperature averages 72 degrees, but the temps can reach into the 90s during the summer months or dip into the chilly 40s or 50s during the coldest parts of the year. However, snow in Sarasota is an anomaly.

Sarasota Sights and Entertainment

Sarasota is a focal point for cultural arts and conservation in Florida. Each year the Sarasota Orchestra hosts a three-week music festival that draws people in from around the world. Students from Florida State University complete their master's training at the Asolo Conservatory there, and several theater, opera and ballet houses fill the city. The city is also home to the Mote Marine Laboratory and Sarasota Jungle Gardens, which attract nature lovers from across Florida and beyond. While Orbitz.com is crafty at finding the best flights to Sarasota, travelers can also use it to book accommodations and get discounts for the city's top attractions.

Sarasota When to Go

An artistic community blessed with beaches galore, Sarasota celebrates beauty created by both nature and people. In the high season, especially around Easter and spring break, the sandy shores teem with beachgoers. Siesta Key has been named the top beach in the world by “Dr. Beach” (Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, the director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University), who praises its powdery white sand, child-friendly waves, clean and clear waters, and recreational fitness opportunities. With a dozen or so public courses, golf is another popular outdoors pursuit.

Summer is a little slower in Sarasota, thanks to showers and high temps that send people looking for shade (although the heat usually tops out in the low 90s). But if fun in the sun is what you’re after, you’ll benefit from lower-priced accommodations. There are special kids’ programs at Sarasota Jungle Gardens, an old swampy banana grove–turned–botanical garden. Inside its 10 acres, reptiles, birds of prey, flamingos, and other animals (many of which are rescues) live among exotic flora. For classical music lovers, this season hosts a can’t-miss event: the Sarasota Music Festival. Top talents from around the world converge for three weeks in June to mentor the most promising up-and-coming student musicians, resulting in artist showcases and concerts that give the public rare listening opportunities.

Fall is a quieter time, when the kids go back to school and the snowbirds are still away. Check out the Sarasota Chalk Festival in November, an event that turns the street into a canvas you have to see to believe. For more handmade inspiration, hit the Towles Court Arts District, a collection of bungalows containing galleries and studios where you can usually find someone hard at work on a portrait, print, painting, or pair of earrings.
