Lido Key on the West Coast of Florida
A European style island off the coast of Sarasota, Florida, Lido Key attracts tourists and vacationers from all over the world. Many visitors return year after year and later purchase properties as second homes or relocate to the highly popular area. Two bridges connect this island to Sarasota’s mainland: the John Ringling Bridge from downtown Sarasota from the east and a bridge north to Longboat Key.
Lido Key Beach
Visitors are attracted to Lido Key Beach, condominiums on Lido, shopping on famous St. Armands Circle as well as the cultural activities offered in the Sarasota area. Accommodations at condos, motels, hotels and private single family homes are available for rent on this Key making it easy to visit all Lido Key venues.
Lido Key Beach’s public pavilion features concessions and grills. There is ample parking in the public parking lot. The North end of Lido Key Beach is more secluded and the South end is home to more than 100 hundred Australian Pines. Picnic tables, grills are available as well as more beautiful beach.
St. Armands Circle
The famous outdoor shopping center of St. Armands, surrounding a Central Park rich in Sarasota’s circus history, is within walking distance from Lido Key. Enjoy Lido Key Beach, take a lunch break on the Circle, back to the beach for sunset, home for a quick shower, and stop on the Circle for a light dinner at an outdoor café and on to the theater in downtown Sarasota. Exhausted? No, it’s invigorating and presents an active West Coast Florida lifestyle in Paradise.
