This is the time of year to go all out. Fortunately, the city of Sarasota is well equipped to handle it, with a selection of firework shows to view, barbecues to join, and some of the best beaches around to celebrate them on. Don’t miss out as Sarasota works to light up the sky – make plans to visit one of these areas for your Independence Day celebration.

Sarasota Bay

The best spot to watch the city’s firework shows is from Sarasota Bay, and there’s no spot better than Bayfront Park. Come early and grab a picnic blanket for a star-spangled night out on the grass, or enjoy dinner at one of the restaurants nearby. Marina Jack’s has waterfront views so that you can enjoy the fireworks with dinner and drinks, but make sure to make reservations in advance.

Siesta Key

This little island to the left of Sarasota celebrates the Fourth of July in their own fun way. This year marks the 29th Annual Fourth of July Fireworks Display, which is held nearby the volleyball courts on the island. Enjoy watching the fireworks light up the sky and see the show from the beach, the Intracoastal, or the north end of the island.

BLVD Sarasota

It’s never too early to start making your plans for next year’s Fourth of July. The best way to view the firework shows is to go face to face with them. As they light up the sky, you’ll get the most spectacular views from 18 stories up directly from the comfort of your residence. Upon completion at the beginning of 2020, you’ll have plenty of space to see the fireworks show with – an expansive floor to ceiling glass window, and you even have a balcony to step out and get a closer look at the show that no one else will have. Best of all, with direct proximity to the bay, you’re going to get an amazing view once construction is finished with this project.
BLVD Sarasota is now under construction and scheduled for Top Off this month! These residences start at $1.9 million and offer a landmark lifestyle in the heart of Sarasota’s downtown arts & entertainment district. With just 49 residences ranging from 3550sf to 5500sf, these BLVD Sarasota residences will feature large wrap around terraces, soaring ceilings, and a rooftop zero-horizon pool to capture the city views and expansive sights of Sarasota Bay. Spacious designs offer some of the largest floor plans in Downtown Sarasota. Residents also get to enjoy a rooftop zero-horizon pool, a wine cellar to store their favorite vinos, and a pet lawn on the fifth floor to take care of your furry friend with.

BLVD Sarasota residents are always just steps away from Sarasota’s world-class entertainment, museums, art galleries and restaurants. A future development titled ‘The Bay’ is working to deliver live entertainment, outdoor activities, and a gorgeously designed social center right to the Rosemary District’s doorstep. Another future development titled The Quay will serve to fill a need for shops and entertainments within the Rosemary District’s area. It’s a great way for small businesses to promote themselves while also empowering Sarasota’s economy.
