Florida Farewell: Siesta Key, Sarasota

Florida Farewell: Siesta Key, Sarasota

Siesta Key is where some of my best summer memories were made. Ever since I can remember, my family has picked Siesta Key and its beaches as our summer spot. It’s not surprising either considering these beaches are actually perfect – sugar white sand, not too crowded, clear Gulf water, and plenty of pretty seashells. Of course, on my Florida Farewell trip I had to make a stop for a few days here. Here’s what I did:

  • Nothing. Yeah…I sat on the beach and drank beer.


  • Biked through Siesta Key – getting back to the regularly scheduled adventure programming.


  • Watched the sunset on the Gulf – not something I’ll be able to do in Kansas


  • Ate ice cream – who’s surprised? No one.
