Summer Travel Outlook

Fueled by Covid vaccines and people yearning to break free from a long winter at home, the summer travel season is already booming with unprecedented inquires for vacation rentals on Longboat Key and Lido Key.  While many will be vaccinated by summer, there is still uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and family travel.  That being said, Longboat Key beaches, even in high season aren’t crowded, making our area a particularly desirable destination for those wanting to continue social distancing.

Sarasota airport has added Southwest Airlines to the growing list of carriers making it easier than ever for our guests to take a direct flight from home to paradise! New direct flights include; Houston, Nashville, Chicago, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Columbus, and Indianapolis.  If you haven’t flown into Sarasota, you are in for a treat.  Small and efficient, travelers enjoy a quick walk to baggage claim and car rentals, so you are on your way to the beach faster than ever before!

Many attractions are open year-round, however, after the year 2020 we all endured, even more is opening back up in Florida! You will find most attractions are ready to welcome the public. Each attraction may have its own requirements on mask regulations and social distancing, so be on the lookout for those at each destination.

Unlike more congested areas of Florida, summer is not our high season, winter is.  Our summer rates drop dramatically, making it an ideal time to extend your stay and have the luxury to fully unwind after such a stressful year and make yourself at home.  Furnished kitchens with full sized appliances and laundry facilities are of among the many amenities of a vacation rental that will still make your vacation feel special, but easier to take necessary precautions when away from home.

There are so many things to do on Longboat Key and Lido Key in the summer for families, couples, and friends looking for a place to reconnect! From beautiful beaches, outdoor events, romantic dining and shopping nearby, there really is something for everyone on Longboat Key.
