If there’s one word that’s synonymous with Florida, it’s beaches. Sink your toes into the soft white sand, build a castle, search for shells and sharks teeth, or relax under an umbrella with a good book. Sarasota’s Gulf beaches feature long stretches of soft white sand, and wide-open horizons to watch the setting sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. Grab a towel, some sunscreen and fill a water bottle – it’s about all you need. Want to spend the day? Pack a picnic or a fishing rod – the sand and water are waiting for you.
