Holidays in Sarasota, Gulf Coast of Florida
p>Holidays in Sarasota. When a perfect vacation involves sun, sand, wildlife and ocean sports, then the perfect place is Sarasota, Florida. This beautiful spot on the Gulf of Mexico beckons visitors with pure outdoor fun. A playground for winter-weary Northerners looking for a break from snow and ice, this place also calls to the young and the young at heart.
Grab your swimsuit and head out for a great time on the emerald waters. Sarasota is filled with watersports of all kinds. Try your hand at paddle-boarding. Grab a long board, a paddle, and your best balance and paddle along the shore and waterways. See nature up close. Although paddle-boarding is great exercise, it is also a relaxing way to spend the day.
For those with a little adventure in their blood, Myaaka State Park is the place to put your kayak in. Here, the waters are infested with alligators. Paddle quietly and do not bother the gators. Most of the time, they won’t bother you. The park is also home to wild hogs, turkeys, caracaras, turtles and deer. Take your bike and enjoy a whole day just exploring the natural side of Florida.
