With over 50 miles of white sand beaches and gorgeous Gulf of Mexico sunsets, the Florida west coast, home to Sarasota, Anna Maria Island, and Boca Grande, is perfect for a romantic getaway, fun family vacation, or even a relaxing solo trip. Situated on Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Nikki Logan Curran, editor of The Scout Guide Sarasota, Anna Maria Island to Boca Grande, notes that the area is home to some of the best fishing and boating on the west coast of Florida. Whether you opt for a private fishing charter, sunset cruise, dolphin excursion, or all three, they never disappoint. But the sun and sand aren’t the only draw: “Sarasota is known as Florida’s Cultural Coast, featuring The Sarasota Ballet, Sarasota Opera House, Asolo Repertory Theater, Orchestra, and much more,” Curran says.
