If you do a bit of research on family friendly Florida vacation destinations, you’ll often find Siesta Key mentioned among the best of them. The beaches of Siesta Key are often highlighted as the top attraction for families and visitors.
But, there is so much more to explore throughout the island and in nearby Sarasota including family friendly restaurants, shops and boutiques in Siesta Village, spas, live concerts, protected habitats brimming with local wildlife and aquariums. Siesta Key family resorts like Tropical Breeze are also packed with amenities for all ages in one of the most scenic and exciting ocean settings in the world.
Siesta Beach is often mentioned as being one of the best beaches for families in the world; it offers safe, calm clear and shallow water for swimmers of all ages, lifeguards, and every amenity you could need. The beach is a short distance from Tropical Breeze Resort. You can drive there from our Siesta Key beach resort in just a few minutes if you have a vehicle, or take the new free Siesta Key Trolley which goes right there from Siesta Village!
When staying in our resort you’ll be able to visit Siesta Beach as much as you want and experience what it’s like to spend the whole day there building sandcastles, swimming in turquoise waters, sipping a drink under a beach umbrella, or playing volleyball. Concessions on the beach will keep your family hydrated and energized.
Picnic tables are available if you want to pack a lunch along with a well-maintained children’s playground if they want to take a break from the beach and get some play time in.
Mote Marine Laboratory, Lido Key and so much more
While vacationing to Siesta Key with your family, you’ll find plenty of things to do right next door, but you should also venture out into the Sarasota area and explore the other incredible barrier islands and attractions nearby. One of them that we highly recommend for families is the Mote Marine Laboratory on City Island.
This expansive aquarium is located on the gorgeous barrier island of Lido Key, just a short 20-minute drive from Siesta Village. It has enough animal exhibits to fill up a whole day including over 100 species of marine life such as stingrays, jellyfish, sea turtles, sharks, manatees, and a huge range of fish species. Your kids will absolutely love every minute you spend here, and it well worth the short drive.
