Hit the Beach or Browse The Local Boutiques
With a coastal breeze in your hair and the sugary-fine white sand of Longboat Key between your toes it’s hard to imagine a better place to be. Truly, Zota Beach Resort rests on one of Florida’s most coveted beachfronts. While the azure blue waters of the Mexican Gulf are a huge draw for many, retreating to the hotel’s private pool and cabañas also offers respite and relaxation.

St. Armand’s offers fashionable attire, nail salons, and even several art galleries—perfect for an afternoon splurge. Other shopping centers include University Town Center, The Prime Outlets of Ellenton, and even the Red Barn Flea Market which is full of great finds!
