Day 1: Snorkeling and Scooting Your Way to Fun
The first day of your Siesta Key adventure begins with a heart breakfast enjoyed at Another Broken Egg restaurant. This eatery has something for the entire family and will help fill you up on pancakes and French toast that’s sure to make the beginning of your adventure as savory as it is satisfying. Once you’ve had your last sip of coffee, it’s time to head out to Siesta Key’s iconic Crescent Beach. This inviting stretch of shoreline is a great place to get a feel for the place you’ve found in all of its natural beauty and wonder. Spend some time strolling and admiring as you make your way towards Point of Rocks where you’ll grab your snorkel gear and get your underwater adventures underway. This is Siesta Key’s prime snorkeling location and one you just won’t want to miss out on. When you emerge from the water, take some time to explore for shells and observe tide pools before heading towards Ride & Paddle where your next fun adventure is to rent a scooter and explore the island on two wheels! Once you’ve returned your rental, make your way towards the Lobster Pot Restaurant where you can enjoy the best of fresh caught fare in good company. If you have any energy left on night one, a stop at the Daiquiri Deck in Siesta Key Village is a great place to enjoy some drinks, live music, and dancing too.
Day 2: Shopping and Sweets
Day two of your Siesta Key summer getaway focuses on everything shopping and sweets. Breakfast is served this morning at Village Café and once you’re fueled up for fun, you’ll be heading towards Siesta Key Village. This part of Siesta Key is known and loved for its collection of beach bars, sports outfitters and of course, one-of-a-kind shops you’re going to want to spend ample time checking out. Whether you’re on the hunt for apparel or souvenirs, you’re sure to find it here. Make your way down Ocean Boulevard window shopping this afternoon or stopping in and picking up items that have long graced your must-purchase list. Siesta Key Village sits within walking distance from the beach, so you can follow up your shopping adventures with some well-earned time relaxing on the sand if you choose too. This evening, plan on dining at The Old Salty Dog which is right in the heart of the village. If you have a sweet tooth to satisfy after dinner, picking up a waffle cone at Big Olaf Creamery should do the trick.
Day 3: Seashells and Parasailing
Today, breakfast can be enjoyed at Bonjour French Café but once you’ve finished off your crepes, be sure you have a pail in hand. You’ll be heading towards the beach in pursuit of beautiful seashells on the sand that work well as souvenirs to remember your trip by too. Once you’ve filled your pail, it’s time to head over to CB’s Saltwater Outfitters. This company provides hourly boat rentals and with your boat securely booked, you can enjoy an afternoon on the Gulf of Mexico sailing at your own pace. When relaxing time on the water has been checked off the list, it’s time to boost the adrenaline-pumping momentum. Make your way to Parasail Siesta and enjoy a parasailing adventure that gives you a bird’s eye view on the beautiful landscapes! When you’re safely back on earth, it’s time to freshen up and head over to The Hub Baja Grill for dinner.
