Aside from our favorites, like The Ringling and Sarasota Classic Car Museum, be sure to check out the noteworthy Mote Marine Aquarium and the creative, bold, and breathtaking Sarasota Art Museum.

Movie Theaters & Bowling Alleys


Find your favorite new release at one of four local theaters, including Regal Hollywood – Sarasota, Parkway 8 Cinema, AMC 12, which offers a remarkable IMAX experience, and CMX CineBistro Siesta Key, for a unique lunch or dinner during the film. A nostalgic day of bowling with the family at AMF Gulf Gate Lanes or Sarasota Lanes will also be a memorable day.

Indoor Amusement & Escape Rooms


Older kids and families who love a good challenge are sure to find one at Lokey’s Escape Rooms, Escape Reality, or Escape Room Sarasota. For more interactive family fun, check out Livingston’s Amusements for bumper cars, go-carts, a climbing wall, arcade, bazooka ball, billiards, and more.

Siesta Key Shopping


Siesta Key Village is home to over 75 different shops for souvenirs, beach gear, jewelry, beautiful gifts, and the latest fashion trends and styles. Another local favorite shopping destination is the renowned St. Armand’s Circle.

Indoor Shopping Mall


While you will need your umbrella as you quickly dart between stores at both Siesta Key Village and St. Armand’s, you can take full cover at the Mall at University Town Center. Spend hours browsing the 150 stores and restaurants that will have something exciting for everyone.

When Mother Nature’s plans don’t match up with yours, you can always find something fun to do around Sarasota & Siesta Key!
