If you’re moving to Florida, chances are you want to be near a beach, or at least within driving distance to one!
A common question we get is: how close is Lakewood Ranch, FL to the beach? Well, today we answer that question by taking you on a trip to Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, Florida, which happens to be the number one beach in the USA! Now, bear with me because driving videos are tough to make smoothly, but we wanted to be as real as possible.
We head out of Lakewood Ranch at 1:36 PM and that is from the center of town, so a good central location to gauge the travel time. We have an easy ride and arrive in Siesta Key around 2:00PM, so less than 30 minutes! Siesta Key Beach has plenty of public parking, restrooms, and concessions for you enjoy your entire day.
This beach is voted #1 because it has pure white sand that doesn’t get hot, crystal clear blue water, and some of the most beautiful sunsets. They do a drum circle on Sundays around sunset and you can also visit Siesta Key Village for additional dining, shopping, and social options.
Siesta Key Beach is one of many beaches within 35 minutes or so from Lakewood Ranch. You can also try Lido Key Beach, Anna Maria Island, Cortez Beach, and Bradenton Beach. Plenty of options to enjoy those sunny days!
