There is no shortage of awesome things to do in southwest Florida, but many of these attractions can be quite costly, which is why our movers at All My Sons Sarasota offers a list of free things to do after moving to Sarasota. Simply put, all of these activities are fun, and better yet, cost nothing!
1. Spend the day at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota.
Relax in the shade while enjoying the beautiful views and breeze off the Sarasota Bay.
2. Play some drums on the Sarasota beaches.
Drum circles often form on Sundays around 6 p.m. at Siesta Key Beach, and on Nokomis Beach on Wednesday and Saturday at sundown.
3. Go see the manatees at Portosueno Park.
The yacht basin off of Palma Sola Bay is one of the free things to do in northwest Bradenton. Take the great opportunity to spot some sea cows mating after moving to Sarasota.
4. Hit up the North Port Skate Park.
Test out your skateboard, bike, or inline skating skills at the skate park which features concrete bowls, ramps, jumps, and rails.
5. Steal a kiss under the Kissing Statue.
The 26-foot-tall statue officially titled “Unconditional Surrender” is the perfect place for a kissing selfie with your loved one after moving to Sarasota.
6. Search for shark’s teeth on Caspersen Beach.
One of our favorite free things to do is search for shark teeth. Locals and tourists flock to the beach to search and collect prehistoric shark teeth, which can decorate your Sarasota home or make for totally awesome jewelry.
7. Go for a stroll through Towles Court.
After moving to Sarasota, visit the creative arts community in downtown Sarasota. The community hosts an art walk every third Friday of every month, from 5-9 p.m.
