About an hour south of of Tampa Bay is the beach city of Sarasota, Florida. You can get there by heading south on I-75 from Tampa or south on I-275 from St. Petersburg. Many refer to Sarasota as the “Cultural Capital” because of the wide array of arts and cultural activities that the city has to offer. People fall in love with Sarasota because it is a smaller community with gorgeous beaches, fabulous restaurants, a multitude of tennis and golf facilities, great schools, arts, culture, Sarasota Film Festival, and a wide array of housing options.
Another great thing about Sarasota is the close proximity to a larger city like Tampa. An hour drive north and you can be eating at the ever popular and delicious Cheesecake Factory, shopping at the International Mall, spending the day with your family at Busch Gardens or playing with animals at the Lowery Park Zoo. Enjoy taking a Saturday and spending the day in Tampa or St. Petersburg.
