The south central coastline of Florida is a lush tropical paradise filled with opportunities for fun, adventure, easy lounging, and great food.

Things to Do in Florida's South Central Gulf Coast

The Ringling Circus Museum

The highly acclaimed Ringling Family Museum in Sarasota is great for a day of easy strolling, learning lesser-known facts about the Ringling Brothers family and their renowned circus, and more. This grand estate encompasses an art museum that showcases classic sculptures and works of art from Rembrandt, Rubens, and much more. The surrounding grounds and gardens are a special treat for those with an appreciation for horticulture and garden design, and the Ca d'Zan is the Ringling family's Venetian-inspired mansion.

The Ringling Circus Museum contains plenty of fascinating historic elements and anecdotes along with an awe-inspiring display of the artfully crafted animal carts and railway cars that rolled many roads to bring joy to countless thrill seekers throughout the early-to-mid 20th century.

Sarasota Classic Car Museum

Step into Sarasota's time machine and take a trip through the history and evolution of the automobile at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum. You'll see rare and intriguing classics, and Beatlemaiacs can swoon over several of John Lennon's Mercedes Benzes and Paul McCartney's mini. Some of the cars are even available for sale.

Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy

You'll know that you're headed for a day of fun when you see the oversized pink flamingo in front of the Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy in Sarasota. This unique museum is filled with objects de' art that will boggle the imagination and are sure to generate one smile after another.

Water Activities

The South Central Gulf Coast of Florida is teaming with opportunities for water adventures. Tourists and locals in Fort Meyers Beach are treated to enchanting tours, cruises, fishing charters, and opportunities to experience other popular water activities, some of which include:

  • Stand-up paddle-boarding
  • Scuba diving and snorkeling
  • Waterskiing and Jet-skiing

Weather in Florida's South Central Gulf Coast

Feel free to visit Florida's south central gulf coast most any time of the year. You'll experience a humid, subtropical, savannah-like climate with temperatures that usually top-off in the low 90s in July and August and recede to the low 50s in January. The rainy season for this region spans from June through September, so you'll have no chill to fear if your vacation falls into that timeframe, but do check the forecast for tropical storms.

How to Get to Florida's South Central Gulf Coast

Unless you're taking your car for a road trip down I-75 or one of the lesser roads into the Florida peninsula, you'll arrive by airplane or boat. The Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport has a terminal conveniently located in Sarasota County, and the nearby Venice Municipal Airport in Venice and Buchan Airport in Englewood also provide international access to the region. There are also a variety of cruises that traverse the diverse and enchanting 3,000-mile Intracoastal Waterway.

Once you have arrived, rental cars are readily available along with limousines, taxis, and the SCAT bus line provides convenient public transportation. Have a safe and memorable vacation.

Lovely Cottage in Seminole Heights

We enjoyed our recent stay in the cottage. Everything is brand new and the extras truly make you feel at home. Yvette and Nathan was charming hosts

Like staying at your best friend's condo!

5 of 5
The condo is beautifully decorated, and does not look like a typical "rental" unit. Staying here was jsut like staying at a friend's condo - all the amenities like dishes, keurig coffee maker, televisions, dvd movies, front loading washer/dryer, etc. were there. The furniture was not "rental" grade furniture - it was the nice stuff that you would buy for your own house. The condition of the condo was immacualate (everyrthing was clean and well-maintained). We liked the fact that it was just one of three condominiums in the building. The pool and beach view were also amazing. We will definitely be a repeat visitor to this property!
