Sarasota County Sports

Where athletes come to play and stay.

Sarasota County is a top destination for professional, amateur and recreational sports due to our year-round, sunny skies and wide array of community amenities. Our well-known sporting facilities include MLB spring training complexes for Baltimore Orioles and Atlanta Braves, internationally acclaimed multi-sport rowing venue Nathan Benderson Park, and the No. 1 beach in the U.S. on Siesta Key. Sarasota County is much more than simply 35-miles of pristine beaches. Our destination fosters and supports an active sports community in addition to robust arts, culture, and dining scenes.
