Lido Key - Sarasota

For our 17th wedding anniversary we decided to spend it in Sarasota. We had a wonderful time. Lido Key beach is beautiful the sunset is amazing as you can see from photo.

We stayed at Hotel Ranola. We spend a day at the beach with pitcher of homemade sangria and watched the sunset.

We also the visited Ca' d'Zan Mansion, the Circus Museums and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Was a great trip.

Hotel Ranola - This is where we stayed :)

Hotel Ranola - Downtown Sarasota

This was such an awesome room! When we go back this is definitely where we will stay. The hotel is small only has 9 rooms. Each room has a full kitchen, a sitting area, a vanity, hardwood floors and funky, modern decor. It's wild, but also warm, cozy and comfortable. I have photos below of our room, but if you click on this image and visit the hotel website to see more photos, details and accommodations.
