Guide to Longboat Key Sarasota Florida

Longboat Key has so many hidden treasures and Adventures to explore. 
I'm going to share the ones we explored. This Earth has so many amazing places and so many right in the State you live. You just have to pack up the car and get out there and explore. Each time we go out we always find something new and fun! This is best place for the day or a Weekend getaway with the family or just yourself.

Longboat Key is a town in Manatee and Sarasota counties along the central west coast of the U.S. state of Florida, located on and coterminous with the barrier island of the same name. Longboat Key is south of Anna Maria Island, between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
 It is almost equally divided between Manatee and Sarasota counties. The town of Longboat Key was incorporated in 1955 and is part of the Bradenton–Sarasota–Venice Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Longboat Key Beach is seriously one of the best beaches we have been to. 
There is very little people at any time of the year. If you stop by the Welcome Park Sign with all the Bird Names and species you will find Each and everyone one of those plus more roaming and exploring the Beaches. It was Neat for Kylie to Learn about each of the Birds. Along with every kind of Seashell you can think of! The sand feels so soft and white and the sun doesn't make it hot at all like most beaches. 


Another must while in Longboat Key is St.Armands Circle Shops and Restaurants.
 We spent the entire day just shopping, exploring and tasting yummy Treats and Food. 

Some of Our favorite Stores- Fresh Produce, Little Bo'tique, crazy shirts, just because,  Napels soap store, Gem. We went into every store just to see what they had. We loved each and every one.

Treats and Food- Le Macaron (Kylies most favorite) , Big Olaf Creamery- BEST PLACE- Yummy pies and IceCream, GIGI cupcakes- So many amazing Yummy choices, 

The Pepper Place- It was so much fun trying all kinds of BBQ sauce and hot sauces along with salsas.

 Spice Exchange- This was our favorite Stay tuned for a blog on it. We tried so many spices and Every Flavor Sugars. We picked our favorites to buy. Kylie's Favorite was the Raspberry Sugar, Strawberry Sugar,  Ranch Dill Dip I loved all the mixed blends and picked up two kinds of Curry. stay tuned for some yummy recipes.

The Peanut Shop- So many delish tasting peanuts. Not just salty but sweet and any flavor you can think of. Favorites Garlic and milk and dark chocolate.
They offer FREE samples of each one they make!  I recommend Buying a peanut tree at the Peanut shop because it will be so neat for your little ones to learn how peanuts grow.
