Looking to rent a car and see what else is there to do in Florida? Make sure to add Sarasota to your list! A beach city, located only 30 minutes away from Anna Maria Island, you get to see what the city has to offer without straying too far away. In October, there will be a few exciting events to check out so make sure to write these ones down!

Discover Sarasota Tours: Opening Launch Party

Nothing beats tiki bars, vintage gift shops, barbeque and soul food and good music to dance to! Sarasota will now be offering guided tours all around the city so make sure to stop by for their opening launch party on October 4th! You can also meet some guides so if you have any questions on what to do, they’ll be the best people to ask.

Sun Fiesta 2018

Add 20 minutes to your drive and you’ll be able to check out Sun Fiesta 2018! Sun Fiesta will be held on October 19th to the 21st and will be located in Venice, Florida. There will be a 5K marathon, a Miss Sun Fiesta Pageant, an Arts and Craft alley where you can see local artwork, a Kids Korner if you plan on bringing kids and Bed Races! Make sure to come hungry too since there will be a food court with lots of options to try fun. Most importantly, parking is free so if you plan on renting a car, you’ll save money on not paying for parking!

The Pumpkin Festival

Every weekend in October, Fruitville Grove opens their pumpkin patches for The Pumpkin Festival. Although you’re in Florida, it doesn’t mean you can’t get into the Fall mood! There will be live music, decorated photo spots, pumpkin painting, pony rides, rock walls, bounce houses and a petting zoo! Perfect for the whole entire family or if you’re looking to pick up a pumpkin for Halloween!
Haley’s Motel is located on Anna Maria Island and is the perfect place to book your accommodation this October. With its close location to Sarasota while still being far enough away where you can escape the busy city life if you want to relax by the beach, Haley’s Motel is the perfect place to stay!
