Free things to do in Sarasota

Whether you're looking to spend your vacation on the beach, taking in the nightlife or shopping your heart out, Sarasota is the place to be. The Gulf Coast locale is popular for its thriving arts community, diverse array of restaurants and pleasant year-round climate. While a visit to this Florida tourist spot can be pricey, you can save some money on your excursion by renting through Thrifty Car Rental, which offers stunning Sarasota deals on a multitude of Sarasota rental cars. You can also be frugal when selecting the attractions you visit by sticking to these free sites:

The Palm Avenue's First Friday Walks are held on the first Friday of each month and exposes you to the top galleries, antique shops, eateries and other establishments along Palm Avenue. The Towles Court Art Walks take place on the third Friday of each month and take you around the galleries and studios of the destination's artists colony.
