This is a nice little village with shops and a few restaurants, great little place just to walk around. We have learned it's easier to walk to the village then to find a parking space, parking is very limited. Great little ice cream shop is also there.

I rode my bicycle from Lido Beach hoping to have a Siesta Key relax morning and I found not the Siesta (in spanish means to sleep, relax) that I was expecting traffic and plenty of tourist in one word disappointed

Siesta Key village is a great eclectic place to visit and sample the Florida gulfside life. Great restaurants and tourist shops. If you go to the #1 Siesta Key beach, make sure you spend some time in the village.

The Village is a strip filled with restaurants/bars and surf shops with a very Florida like feel. It's great for adults, (bars live entertainment etc.) but also fun for kids with ice cream parlors and gift shops with Florida keepsakes, toys, and beach gear. I've lived here 8 years and still can't get enough of Siesta Key Village. I go... More

Great little town area with restaurants, shops and all in just one long block. Wide variety of restaurants to choose from plus the usual beach-town tourist shops with tee shirts, etc.

We visited the village on a Saturday morning and there was a market on. There were some great stalls and we had a lovely time walking around. It's a great place to visit.

Beautiful white powdery sand beaches, plenty of restaurants you can walk to, and a unique "Drum Circle" every Sunday of the year where locals bring bongo drums, xylophones, and a hippys come out and dance inside the circle alongside of tourists and onlookers. Just ask any local to find out more about the Sunday "Drum Circle"

Growing up in sarasota, you come to know the village as a tourist trap. On any given day you will see more out of towners than locals. But it is fun and kitschy. There are several bars that are local favs. But it's pretty safe overall and i don't worry about walking around it there by myself. So enjoy the... More
