This was our first trip to Longboat and we were definitely NOT disappointed. It was simply beautiful and could definitely become a retirement destination in the future.
The island is just about a mile outside Sarasota and St. Armand's Circle (wonderful shopping).
We stayed at the Resort at Longboat Key Club, one of the only resorts on the island. The resort was great and I would definitely recommend it to any future travelers. We were actually told by one of the waiters we had just missed seeing our wonderful Coach Calipari....he had left the day before we arrived.....just my luck. I would have LOVED to have seen him!
We traveled with two of our favorite people, Travis and Andrea...
I can't imagine vacationing without them!

Our favorite restaurant was Mar Vista. The food was great and the laid-back atmosphere was even better.
