[QUOTE=rdona24;981921]In May we took a day trip (approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes each way) to Sarasota Siesta Key beach. It was by far the most beautiful beach I’ve seen in a long time. It has concessions, showers, picnic tables, and the most beautiful baby powder sand I’ve ever seen. And btw, parking is free.[/QUOTE]
I agree, we spent a week at Siesta Key Beach in April (we’re going back April 2010). BEAUTIFUL is an understatement!! The sand is actually white quartz, it’s like powdered sugar…and it NEVER gets hot! If you go, you definitely will not be disapointed.
