Scenic route from Clearwater area

Hello,

Flying into PIE tomorrow, then driving to Siesta Key. Google maps suggests taking the 275 to the 75, but I was thinking it might be a nicer drive to take the 275 to the 64 to the 789 through Anna Maria Island.

Is this actually a more scenic drive? It doesn't seem to be much longer.

It will be slower driving through AMI/Longboat Key/Lido Key but the scenery is much nicer.

We did it in March & it was a beautiful drive. We even stopped for lunch on Bridge st when we were in AMI & it was quite relaxing & broke up the trip nicely.

You should do it

Thanks for the advice ... back from vacation and ended up taking the scenic drive. It was definitely a nice drive. We didn't make any stops due to time, but we all agreed we would come back and spend some time in the area.
