Things to Do

There are countless activities to experience in Siesta Key no matter when you visit, but they can be especially fun around Labor Day. You can’t plan a Florida vacation without stopping at the beach, and Siesta Key has some of the most gorgeous stretches of sand in the state. Crescent Beach is a popular stop, with convenient facilities and affordable equipment rentals nearby. Turtle Beach is also a great option, especially since Labor Day falls in sea turtle nesting season!

Siesta Key also offers some incredible dining experiences featuring the freshest seafood around. The Cottage and The Siesta Key Oyster Bar are just two awesome stops. In the mood for breakfast? Try Sun Garden Café for a full meal, or grab a cup of coffee at LeLu Coffee Lounge. Kids will love family-friendly options like The Old Salty Dog and Made in Rome. Finally, grab dessert at Meanery’s Mini Donuts to finish off your day!

While you’re in town, be sure to make a day trip or two to the nearby cities for even more excitement. You’re just 15 minutes from Sarasota and 45 minutes to Bradenton.
