Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game and turned the sister island to Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.
My wife and I and two kids (5 & 2) enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!
We loved the simplicity. No big slides, no loud noises.
Just the ocean, which could not have been more beautiful!
We loved the salt water pool. And our son loved playing putt-putt.
Since it was a 1/1, we brought a toddler & twin mattress for our kids to sleep on in case they fell off the bed.
We really enjoyed a delicious dinner at Mar Vista Dockside.
Thank for a relaxing get-a-away.
