2 Questions relating to eateries and Cape canaaveral

by dundalkspur

We are planning to stay in the Rita Carlton for 2 weeks are there any eateries within walking distance ?
Are there any tours I can take to Cape Canaveral from the hotel?
Thanks for your help.

Re: 2 Questions relating to eateries and Cape canaaveral

by usatravels


The following restaurants are all within short walking distance

Zak's Steakhouse‎ - 1213 N Palm Ave, Sarasota, FL
Eaten there, great for seafood, steaks!

Bijou Cafe‎ - 1287 1st St, Sarasota, FL
Nice food, above average

Daruma Japanese Steak‎ - 318 Sarasota Quay, Sarasota, FL
Great food, for any special occasion

Marina Jack‎ - 2 Marina Plz, Sarasota, FL
Excellent Seafood, harbour view

Most Organized tours/shuttles to Cape Canaveral depart via Orlando, if you are planning to hire a car you can drive to Cape Canaveral in about 3 hours – 180 mi. I certainly don’t know of any scheduled shuttle service from Sarasota to Cape Canaveral, hopefully another member will correct me.

Good Luck!

Travel Tips for Sarasota


by Tulin

& Directions

is an opportunity to enjoy a stroll along a trail that wanders
through an ever-changing landscape of cool, under-story jungle
growth and around open pond shorelines. As one meanders
through Sarasota Jungle Gardens, a magnificent and wildy
overgrown paradise, one wonders how such an abundance began.

the land was a swampy banana grove listed in the city records as
'an impenetrable swamp'. A local newspaperman, David
Breed Lindsay, purchased these 10 lush acres in the early 1930's
with plans to develop the virgin subtropical jungle into a
botanical garden.

Conrad, was a friend of David Breed Lindsay. He owned an
adjacent nursery and shared Lindsay's dream. Conrad charted
streams, planned the lakes and provided many additional
plantings from his nursery.

thumbs intact, they brought in thousands of tropical plants,
trees and flowers from all over the world. These flourish
harmoniously with native species. All of the numerous plants
today are dispersed throughout the various areas of the Park,
Gardens of Christ, open lagoons, Tiki Garden and within our
dense forested jungle. Some of our prized possessions include
the rare Australian Nut Tree, a Bunya Bunya tree, the largest
Norfolk Island pine in Florida, Bulrush, Strangler Figs, Royal
Palms, Selloums, Banana Trees, Peruvian Apple Cactus, Staghorn
Ferns and native Red Maples, Oak Trees and Bald Cypress.

1936, noticing that a number of people were wandering through
the jungle, Lindsay and Conrad established an admission fee of
10 cents for children and 35 cents for adults. It was decided in
December of 1940 to open Sarasota Jungle Gardens as a special
place for local enthusiasts and tourists. In 1958, Eldon R.
Lindsey, of Atlanta, purchased the property. In 1965, Dr. George
Baughman, the first president of Sarasota's New College bought
the attraction, which was then sold to Arthur C. Allyn ( a
previous owner of the Chicago White Sox) in 1971.

the early years, some of the owners and their families lived on
the grounds, residing in what are now the snack bar/shell
museum. The Koi Carp pool, just outside the snack bar, was
originially a swimming pool connected to the estate house.
Eventually, a new admission building and gift shop were built.

The Wait Staff Wears Cute Outfits

by sarahjayn about Siam Orchid

Sarasota is semi-famous for its excellent Thai food, and Siam Orchid is partly why.
Siam Orchid is definitely the most refined Thai restaurant in Sarasota and the biggest. Though I usually find them adorable, a lot of Thai restaurants have the tendancy to make me feel claustrophobic. Here, they take all the cute things about Thai restaurants: wood carvings, wall plaques, neat fabric, little water dishes with flowers floating in them, and devine wait staff outfits, and put them in a less sardine-can atmosphere.
Besides eye candy and elbow room, the food at Siam Orchid is really, really good. They are willing to work around whatever crazy food allergy / particular food hatred that you have, too, because they make everything fresh. The Amazinf Tofu really is amazing, and so are the banana coins.

Ringling Museum - Museum of Art

by geekgrrl

They had a special exhibit of modern art which we both found interesting. There were Picasso, Dali, and we got to see our first Jackson Pollock painting. We enjoyed that part. The permanent collection consists mainly of old masters from 1500 to about 1750.

The website contains much information and many photos.

When in Sarasota you must...

by probation

When in Sarasota you must visit the Ringling Museum of Art. John Ringling of circus fame was a great lover of fine art. In his world travels he procured many fine paintings and other objects of art. He decided to build a museum on the estate grounds. When he died he left his collection to the state of Florida. The collection includes the world's largest private collection of works by Peter Paul Rubens.
When visiting the complex you must also see the Museum of the Circus. See the rare handbills,posters,sequined costumes,minature circuses and elaborately carved wagons.
Also visit the restoration of the Ringling's glittering bayfront mansion 'Ca d' Zan'.
