Everyone knows that Siesta Key is an island famous for its four beautiful beaches filled with white sand, its clear blue ocean waters, and its lush palm trees. To most, it’s clear that Siesta Key is a place designed for vacationing. During Memorial Day, we’re confident that you’ll find an amazing assortment of activities in which to participate.
Originally named Sarasota Key during the early 1800’s, the island’s name changed in the 1920’s to Siesta Key. Its new name reflects the laid back, fun-loving nature of the island and its 6,000 or so residents. You can join them! For example, do you enjoy surf and the sand? Why not go parasailing, or rent a jet ski at Siesta Key Water Sports? If you prefer rest and relaxation, you can get a therapeutic massage or take a yoga, dance and movement class at a medical day spa! Enjoy shopping sprees? Siesta Key is home to boutique shops with merchants eager to provide you with a great buying experience.
Memorial Day is a great time to visit Siesta Key, to get away from life, to relax on stunning beaches, to sip on a cocktail, and to share a smile with the dolphins you’ll see dancing in the Gulf of Mexico!
