Long Description:
Along Sarasota Bay you will find boat ramps, marinas, and canoe and kayak launches; great fishing spots, hiking trails, running paths and dog walks. Popular Bayfront Park is home to fireworks displays, art exhibits, and political rallies.

"Sarasota Bay and its surrounding area appeared on the earliest maps of Southwest Florida. During the 18th century, this area was known as "Zara Zote." Later on, the name would be changed to Sara Sota, and finally to Sarasota. It is believed the two word Sara Sota was combined due to a rule for one word postal designations."
