Walking Lido Beach is a favorite pastime of tourists and residents alike.

Lido Key / St. Armands

Lido's beaches are one of Sarasota's most interesting and varied waterfront locations, and St. Armands Circle is a hub of elegant shopping and dining.

Once home to the Lido Beach Casino, Lido Key‘s reputation for marrying cosmopolitan life with seaside paradise continues today. Within a short radius lies St. Armands Circle, a sophisticated outdoor dining and shopping area with distinct European flair, iconic examples of mid-century modern architecture and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
