Enjoying Sarasota - Part II

Having a destination wedding or just planning a wedding can be a daunting, albeit exciting task! 

An important component of the planning process is to make sure that your guests have a memorable and relaxing time enjoying the comforts of the bay area. In Part I of my last entry, I focused on the breathtaking beaches that Sarasota has to offer. Along with the miles of sugary white sand and gorgeous sunsets, there are plenty of other activities that will entertain you guests while visiting our beautiful city. As a resident of Sarasota, I take full advantage of what this town has to offer and I’m always happy to share what places I like to enjoy with my friends and family.

The Ringling Museum is a destination in itself while visiting the Sarasota area. Best known for its dazzling display of antiquities and magnificent art, the Ringling is a must for art lovers and nature lovers alike! For anyone who enjoys the gorgeous serenity and beauty of the distant past, The Bayfront Gardens is the perfect place to wander. With a handful of speciality gardens including Mable’s Rose Garden, which was completed in 1913, and includes a variety of over 1200 rose plants, this fragrant spot is sure to delight. Not only are the gardens captivating (and free to the public) but the sheer expanse of the grounds will keep you exploring for hours. Daily tours are provided for those who are interested - and don't forget to stop for a bite to eat at one of the cafes located on the grounds.

This last suggestion is a local favorite that never disappoints. Every Saturday from 7am-1pm, the Sarasota Farmers Market is the spot to take the whole family. Since 1979, the market has been serving the community with local produce, plants, and fresh homemade delicacies. This is a great place to bring the kids and leashed pets for a morning stroll and a quick bite to eat. Located next to Whole foods, downtown, you’ll never be bored or hungry while exploring what the market has to offer. With over 70 vendors you're sure to find something to entice your tastebuds! So grab a coffee and a breakfast sandwich and enjoy exploring the many attractions Sarasota has to offer while basking in the warm Floridian sunshine.
