Visit Sunny Sarasota

Arriving in Sarasota

Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, at 6000 Airport Circle, Sarasota, welcomes most of the flights to the area. The airport enjoys a central location just five miles north of downtown Sarasota and seven miles south of Bradenton. It is serviced by many major domestic airlines, such as Delta, U.S. Airways, JetBlue, and United Airlines, and international carriers, including Air Canada and Air France. Some of the carriers offer scheduled daily flights while other only offer seasonal service.

Getting to Your Destination

Whether you�re heading up to Bradenton or down to Sarasota, you�ll find plenty of transportation options when you arrive at the airport. Diplomat Airport Transportation (941-355-5155) offers taxi service outside of the baggage claim area on the terminal�s west end. If you prefer public transportation, SCAT (941-316-1234) offers bus service to points in Sarasota county for a $1 fare, while MCAT (941-749-7116) offers service throughout Manatee county for a fare of $1.25. Neither service operates on Sundays or national holidays. Many area hotels offer free shuttle service to and from the airport, or you can simply rent a car from one of the eight car rental companies that operate on-site.�

Typical Sarasota Weather

Sarasota offers spectacular year-round weather. Winters fluctuate between the low 50s and low 70s, while summer temperatures are usually in the mid-70s to low 90s. Lightweight clothing is always appropriate for the Sarasota area, although you might want to bring a light jacket in case you encounter a cool evening or two. June through September are considered the rainy season, although storms are usually short lived. If you want to avoid the crowds and still enjoy beautiful, balmy weather, head to Sarasota in the springtime.

Take advantage of its coastal location and spend some time exploring the beaches, snorkeling, or learning how to wakeboard. If you prefer the urban areas, head into the city and explore the Towles Court art district or the shops and restaurants along Main Street. Popular tourist attractions include the Ringling Museum of Art, the Myakka River State Park, and the Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Sports enthusiasts might enjoy a round of golf on one of the area�s world-class courses or a trip to the Ed Smith Stadium, the spring training grounds of the Baltimore Orioles. Summer is fairly busy in Sarasota as is winter when the snowbirds from the northeast flock to the area to get away from the cold and snow. Try to visit during the spring when you can take advantage of low rates and avoid the crowds.

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.
