Sarasota Vacation Packages

Set along the Gulf Coast of Florida, Sarasota appeals to nature lovers of all ages, including beach aficionados. Well known for its eclectic culture, pristine beaches, circus thrills and a wide array of shopping, this seaside city is home to the family behind America’s famous Ringling Brothers Circus. The year-round destination boasts top-rated beaches like Siesta Beach, as well as theatrical venues, art galleries, the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trail and so much more.

Explore Sarasota

The Sarasota area offers a variety of attractions, including 35 miles of powdery beaches and great fishing. There are art galleries, boutiques, and several performing arts groups, including the Sarasota Opera and Ballet Company. 

Meet a manatee, relax on the beach, stroll through a farmers market, or shop ‘til you drop. In Sarasota, it’s easy to make the most out of your trip, no matter what you do. Known as Florida’s Cultural Coast, Sarasota can help you discover your artistic side with a trip to one of many performing arts venues or art galleries. A must-see is the 66-acre bay-front oasis that was once the estate of John Ringling and his wife, Mable. Here, you can take a stroll in the rose garden, or peruse the circus museum, where you can check out the old costumes, wagons and the world’s largest miniature circus. You can also tour Ca’d Zan Mansion, a magnificent 56-room, Venetian Gothic palace that was once the Ringlings’ family home.

From biking to hiking, adventures in Sarasota range from easygoing to heart-pounding. Swing into action on a golf course or a zip line. Set sail for a sunset dinner cruise, or check out a wildlife encounter while kayaking along the shoreline. Spend the day sailing, boating or skimming the waves on a jet ski.

If you need a break from the sun and fun, shopping and nightlife on the Gulf Coast is plentiful. Sarasota’s small-town charm offers big-city sophistication with distinctive boutiques and shops found along Main Street and Palm Avenue. Only a short drive south is Venice, where small shops and boutiques grace the sidewalks, offering everything from classic island wear and jewelry to shells and shark teeth souvenirs. For open-air, pulsating nightlife, head to the corner of Lemon and Main, or for spectacular sunsets and live reggae and beach music, Centennial Park is the place to be.

Delta Vacations packages include round-trip airfare on Delta to Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) or Tampa International Airport (TPA). With so many theme parks and attractions located from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean and south to the Florida Keys, Florida is a great fly/drive destination. 

The distances between Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota are not very far. It's only 22 miles between Tampa and Clearwater, 20 miles between Tampa and St. Petersburg, and 20 miles between Clearwater and St. Petersburg. Sarasota is 37 miles south of St. Petersburg.
