Lying on the Gulf Coast just south of Bradenton, Sarasota offers one of Florida's best-balanced menus of attractions including Florida's offical art museum, a host of cultural and sports activities, swanky shopping districts, varied restaurants and a 35-mile stretch of superb beach. There's a lively cultural scene here that includes theaters big and small plus a popular annual film festival. Springtime draws baseball fans to watch a handful of professional teams go through their spring training.
