It’s time for watermelon and a family picnic this holiday Labor Day Weekend In Sarasota, right? As you know, I’m a lifetime resident, born and raised, in Sarasota, and I just love our beautiful city. I love spending holiday weekends at the local farmer’s markets, supporting other local businesses, and spending time with my family and friends!

If you’re not familiar with Sarasota, people who live here often say it is like living in paradise. The population here continues to grow, as more people are drawn to this fabulous area of sunny weather and great outdoor activities. There is a great job market here, especially for those people working in tourism, small businesses, and healthcare. Travel is easy, as Sarasota has its own international airport, and is only about an hour away from Tampa International Airport, as well as Ft. Myers airport, and did I mention how gorgeous it is here? Let me know if you’d like more information about the area!

And as always, here are a few of our picks for things to do this weekend in Sarasota!
