Hey there Sarasota experts, I have 3-4 days this coming weekend to poke around while tagging along while my wife is conferencing in Tampa. I’m most interested in nice beach time, and also doing some nature stuff like birdwatching or kayaking, etc. (not necessarily in same places as the nice beaches)
Ding Darling on Sanibel seems a bit too far 2.5 hrs each way from Tampa, but that would be the kind of nature/birding area that would be cool. Any suggestions like that an hour or so from Tampa? Crystal river worth exploring for birds & nature?
Do figure will spend some time around Clearwater beaches when the wife has a few free hours, any less busy nice beach spots to recommend in that area?
Thought I’d head down to Lido or maybe Siesta for a day or 2, and dis post in the Sarasota forum for suggestions in that area
