Staycation in Sarasota


While you’re planning summer mini-vacations, consider visiting Sarasota. The sleepy downtown is now booming with things to do, but the arts scene remains a draw.

My favorite spots include:

– Stopping at Sarasota Sorbet after browsing the expanded downtown farmers market.

– Soaking up some sun at Lido Beach. Pro tip: The south end has fewer crowds and a new sandbar.

– Ending with a visit to new downtown hot spot Sage. Dine on the first level, then head to the rooftop for incredible views and amazing cocktails.

And yes, it counts as a staycation even though it’s only an hour south.
