The breathtaking views of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and its surrounding inlets and fishing spots, to the downtown Sarasota skyline offers locals and visitors a place to explore and enjoy the outdoors, history and Florida’s unspoiled natural habitats. A perfect place to absorb the abundance of natural beauty and a kayak around through mangrove tunnels is Fort DeSoto. Arts and culture fills the streets of St. Petersburg with its revitalized downtown district along Beach Drive and the surrounding arts and cultural corridors and downtown shops. Art lovers from around the world converge on the Suncoast to enjoy a wealth of collections from some of the world’s best known artists, from the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, to the sprawling Ringling Museum and estate in Sarasota, and the Tampa Museum of Art. Sarasota offers several world-class entertainment and theater options to enjoy, with the ballet, orchestra, and performing arts hall located within a few short blocks of each other. Enjoy miles of unspoiled, pristine beaches from Anna Maria Island to Longboat Key to Lido Beach, or comb Venice’s famous beaches for sharks teeth.

Secluded Boca Grande marries luxury with old Florida history with the Gasparilla Inn & Club, a private resort that has hosted dignitaries and former presidents over the past century.
