We loved Sarasota! Our stay at Lido Beach was wonderful and the beach was beautiful. We went to Cancun last year and the beach at Sarasota reminds me of Cancun. We ate at Yoders Amish restaurant for breakfast one morning an it was so good. I had the blueberry stuffed french toast and oh my gosh it was like having dessert. We also got a coconut cream pie to go and t was also one of the best I've ever had. We had lunch at Phillippi Creek Oyster Bar and the seafood was so fresh and good. We had dinner at Mattison's City Grille it was also very good but a little pricey. Dinner at Barnacle Bill's was great. We had crabcakes. I can't wait to go back. We rented a boat for 4 hours and had a great time. I think this is my new favorite beach.
