sure to book your hotel far in advance since rooms go fast from February through April. The area’s mild climate attracts visitors during the rest of the year, too, but to a lesser degree. Visiting in the summer comes with its own recompense: higher temperatures, humidity and occasional rain in exchange for discounted hotel rates and fewer crowds on the beach. However, be sure to keep an eye on the local weather since hurricane season runs from June through November.

Wow! This is voted one of the best beaches and it's easy to see why. The sand is so white and soft; it's like talcum powder! Plus, it always stays cool to the touch. It's a big beach with lots of parking and nice facilities.

The best beach is 30 minutes away, down US 41 south to Siesta Dr. This beach was nearest to me in my childhood home in Cherokee Park, near Sarasota Bay. 99% Quartz sand. Need I say more? Siesta Village is laid back and has many great restaurants and night clubs.

I've been going here since I was born and it's still the best beach I've ever been to and the only place you can truly go and just relax.
