Sarasota is one of the major cities in Florida! But sometimes you don’t want to live far away in the beach when you’re visiting beautiful and sunny Florida. So why not rent a car or take the bus down to Sarasota and see what exciting events are happening in May. Whether you’re into tastings, live music or just sightseeing, Sarasota has something for everyone.
If you love Latin Salsa music then head down Lakewood Ranch Main Street in Sarasota from 6-9 PM for Music on Main! There will be free music and a block party for the public. In May, La Lucha Band will be playing Latin Salsa music with a hint of Jazz and a deejay will be there to play today’s Top 100 hits all for a local charity, the Lakewood Ranch Humane Society. So go out, dance and eat your heart out and support a local Sarasotan charity!
If you love rum or at least love history then check out the rum tour! This dog friendly event is a free tour that takes about an hour where you get to learn see how rum is made! The best part? You get to try free samples of the rum made at Siesta Key Rum in the tasting room! Besides being dog friendly, the rum tours are open to children as well (as long as they don’t do any of the tasting) so you can bring the whole family.
Next time you’re planning a last minute trip to Anna Maria Island, don’t forget to stay at Haley’s Motel. A 30 minute away drive from Downtown Sarasota, it’s convenient location makes it easy to rest up and enjoy the sun before you head into busy Sarasota.
