Last time we blogged about cultural events around Sarasota area and today we’d like to focus on other type of activity – outdoors and fitness that you can easily do with your spouse or maybe even grandkids!

Hole in one

A great way to enjoy the beautiful weather and exercise during the day is to go golfing. Located near-by are more than 100 of the finest golf facilities in Florida so plenty to choose from! Depending what your other day activities might take you. Here are few golf course suggestions, all located within 35 minute drive and all top rated:

You can also visit http://playgolfsarasota.com/play-golf/area-courses to view several other places to choose from!

Cruise control

If you enjoy the water, there’s plenty to choose from kayaking to fishing or simply walking down the beach. Gulf and Bay Club is located steps away from the Siesta Key Beach which has been ranked as the #1 beach in the United States many times!

If you prefer doing water activities, perhaps rowing or kayaking would be in order.

Fishing is a nice way of enjoying the sun and water yet leaving to having a laugh! May we suggest Siesta Key Charter Fishing and  Double Nickel Charters – both offer bottom fishing, deep sea charter and trolling etc!

Nobody puts baby in the corner

We already mentioned golf but for taking out your grandchildren, perhaps mini-golf would be better suited! At Smugglers Cove Adventure Golf you can also enjoy playing the 18 holes in “adventure style” mini golf. Their courses are set in lush tropical settings amid waterfalls and rushing waterways with caves, pirate ships and live alligators to boot.
