    About The Sarasota/Manatee Region

    Known as Florida's "Cultural Coast," Sarasota and Her Islands offer you an atmosphere of cultural indulgence, creative abundance and casual elegance, where you can unwind in style. Though many travelers come to Sarasota for the sugar-white sands of Siesta Key and colorful Gulf sunsets, you'll also find a whole other world to enjoy, from exploring the history of the circus to enjoying the wild serenity of Myakka River State Park.

    Manatee County boasts 150 miles of coastline. Anna Maria Island is a nostalgic look back to a time when life moved slower. Downtown Bradenton features antique shops, restaurants and a waterfront district, plus a unique collection of bungalows transformed into art galleries. The South Florida Museum and Parker Manatee Aquarium showcase local history and Snooty™, the world’s oldest manatee and the area’s official mascot.
