What is the Village that everyone is talking about!?

Siesta Key Village

Siesta Key Village

Siesta Key Village is in the heart of Siesta Key with designer shopping, local dining, laidback nightlife and more! Located just steps from the beachfront, The Village is a quaint and cool island strip where there is just enough to explore but not so large that you feel overwhelmed. By your second visit you will feel like a local!

The village is the perfect spot to take a break during your beach day and get a bite to eat at one of the outdoor restaurants or grab an ice cream cone at the popular SubZero Ice Cream. Need more sunscreen, towels, beach toys for the kids or some souvenirs from your trip? You’ll have plenty of shops that you can browse through that will have a plethora of Siesta Key shirts, hats, bumper stickers, you name it, so you can truly embrace being a tourist at the most beautiful beach in America. But don’t worry, there are more to the shops in the Village than touristy sea shells and postcards, there are also unique stores and trendy boutiques. Treat yourself to a trendy new designer dress at The Foxy Lady. Stop by and “try before you buy” a bottle of wine at Siesta Key Tropical Wines. The Local Bean is coffee shop in paradise that supports local art, local venders, and serves an awesome cup of organic. fair-trade coffee. If you have a little extra time, drop in for a class at Studio Rubylake. The exercise studio has a noncompetitive, laid back and peaceful atmosphere focusing on working out for fun and relaxation, and releasing stress – and a Vacation Package: $25 for unlimited group classes for 7 days. One of my personal favorites is Siesta Key Bead Shack. This boutique sells hand crafted jewelry and beads, and you can even design your own jewelry.

Siesta Key Village becomes a popular nightlife spot after dark. If you’d like to enjoy a few drinks and listen to some live music then you’ll love the Siesta Key Oyster Bar, The Hub, or Gilligans. Are you looking for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Laid back, casual or fine dining? Japanese, Italian, Mexican or American? You’ll find such a wide variety of dining experiences here you wouldn’t even have to eat at the same restaurant twice during your visit – unless it becomes your favorite!

Jo To Japanese Steakhouse

The best part is there is are free services that will cart you around anywhere on the key from 10am 2am! So don’t worry about having a few daiquiris because you can be dropped off right at your hotel or condo door. Also, it’s the perfect way to avoid the public beach parking. Save this number on your phone for your trip, you’ll be happy you have it later! 941-306-9097

And one last thing I would like to mention about the village… All the shops and eateries are locally owned and individually awesome. No chain stores or strip mall feel here! Each place is unique and the area has truly kept the classic beach town feel.

Why not ask a staff member at Tropical Beach Resorts which local spot in the Siesta Key Village is their favorite – the locals know best! They can offer all the little suggestions to make your trip the island get-a-way of your dreams!
