Located on the western coast of Florida, Sarasota is the ideal destination for a winter getaway. While many areas of the country are blanketed under snow and ice or are otherwise experiencing the frigid chill of winter, the weather in Sarasota is pleasant almost year-round. In fact, even in the winter months, the average highs are in the mid to upper 70s. This is the ideal weather for enjoying time outdoors strolling along Sarasota’s gorgeous beaches or exploring local sights.
