Sizzling Sarasota 4th of July Events



Spending the Day at the Beach

The 4th of July has always been an important time for our family. Friends and family generally arrive on Siesta Key for the two weeks surrounding this holiday. Neighbors that have second homes in our community take advantage of the warm weather, amazing gulf temperatures and the chance to see old friends.

Personally, I love seeing all the kids. With calm gulf waters, this is the perfect time to teach kids how to SUP (stand-up paddleboard).

It give me so much pleasure to take a child who was nervous about “critters in the water”, swimming in the gulf, and/or getting her face wet and watch the nearly immediate transformation.

Paddleboarding offsets all those fears while she’s focusing on standing on the board, paddling against the current and waving for pictures taken by those on shore.


After a busy day at the beach (where I try to catch a bit of a nap), a great dinner of grilled fish and corn on the cob, the evening events await!
