I was reading an airplane magazine last week and I noticed one of their regular features each month is a “Three days in…” series. Sometimes it’s a city as quaint as Nashville or exotic as Dubai. I have a “three days in” list for Salt Lake (my hometown) and Indianapolis (my current town). I could even come up with one for New York City and Chicago. These trips I’ve been taking lately are the perfect opportunity to put together “three days in” lists for the other cities as well. Oftentimes, I have the opportunity to see the very best parts of the city with a local, the most popular restaurants and to be shown the very best part of what a city has to offer. The worst part is I never get enough time, I’m always left wanting to go back or wishing I could do more.
If you were to do three days in Sarasota, Florida, you would never do as much as we did, but it’s a good starting point to start planning your own Sarasota vacation. Siesta Key, Nancy’s Bar-B-Q and Oscar Scherer State Park are absolute musts when I go back with my own family.
Click through and see a bit of what Sarasota has to offer, and see if it looks like a place you’d like to spend three days.
