Need a weekend away or a beach getaway? Take a look at Longboat Key off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. It is only about a 2 hour drive from Orlando. The key is an 11 mile long barrier island that is surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota bay. You can find as much as you want to do on Longboat Key or as little as you want to do. Vacationers love the long, private beach for walking and getting away from it all. It really is a spectacular place to recharge your batteries either through a vacation for a long weekend or to own your beach getaway.
If you are coming for the weekend you can stay at the The Longboat Key Club, Colony Beach Resort, or the Hilton on Longboat Key. All three resorts are on the beach and allow guest to be within steps of the sand and water. The Longboat Key Club is a resort that offers world class golf and tennis facilities.
Thinking of a second home? I’ve sold several condos to residents of Orlando. They all use them as second homes and can be walking on the beach, frollicking in the ocean, playing a round of golf or eating at St. Armands Circle within a short 2 hour drive. Far enough to escape but not so far that you will never use it.
