Why is Summer in Sarasota So Incredible?

Summer CoveThe summers in Florida are known for their intense heat which makes it more of an off-season to residents. There are so many reasons to appreciate the summers here and ways to use the heat to your advantage.


Thunderstorms are short and sweet in the afternoons in the summer, but they are perfect for a quick cool off, nourish the ground, and you can't beat the sound of rain. After the rain passes, the clouds can form some beautiful looking skies.

The evenings bring gorgeous sunsets that provide the best photographs of a Florida beach. The colors always vary and they never get tiring to look at. What is great is that you can enjoy the days longer in the summer since the daylight hours are closer to 14 hours (instead of the typical 12 hours) between June and September.


Every year the city hosts one week of food from the area's best restaurants at discounted prices such as Café Gabbiano, Duval's New World Café, and Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse. Since people avoid the area during the off season, restaurants have more reservations available and less crowded restaurants. Be sure to check out Kilwins on St. Armands Circle for a fantastic rainbow flavored ice cream cone on a hot summer day.


Enjoy the months of summer dresses, wide brimmed hats, shorts, and flip flops while walking along the beach. The Gulf feels like a warm bath this time of year. After some time at the beach, check out one of the areas great events and attractions like the Sarasota Improv Festival, the Banyan Theater or the SunCoast Super Grand Prix.

Along with these wonderful aspects of Sarasota summer, you can also add that the kids are out of school, traffic dies down, and the locals here are friendly and happy in this year-round paradise.
