The Ringling Museum

The Ringling campus has a stunning courtyard and many gardens, including Mable Ringling’s beloved rose garden. You can't miss an opportunity to admire the jaw-dropping architecture of the Ca’ d’ Zan. Outside, there are plenty of places to pose for photos, whether in the grass, on the stone and marble patio overlooking the water, or near the palm trees.

Sand Dollar Pool Bar

Your friends will have serious FOMO when they stumble upon a photo of you lounging by the pool with a cocktail in hand. You don’t have to leave the hotel to get fun selfies of you and your group at the pool, nor do you have to worry about transportation after enjoying a few drinks.

Downtown Sarasota

In Downtown Sarasota, you'll find colorful murals painted on the side of buildings and even on the sidewalk of Pineapple Avenue, in addition to modern sculptures and eye-catching architecture. On Main Street, a gorgeous fountain and romantic mural are waiting for a photographer to capture their beauty. Then, take a walk down Lemon Avenue to find the giant clam shell.

Botanical Gardens

Be sure to bring a photographer or buddy along with you to the botanical gardens in Sarasota. Both the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the Sarasota Jungle Gardens are filled with colorful, vibrant, exotic, and extraordinary flowers, plants, palm trees, and banyan trees.

Siesta Key Beach

Of course, Siesta Key Beach is perhaps the most Instagram-worthy location on our list. Between the famous white quartz sand, extraordinary turquoise water, and iconic Siesta Key Beach sign, there are many spots for posing, jumping, twirling, and taking selfies with your BFF.
