Sunsets in Sarasota

Floridians brag to our northern friends about walking on the beach in shorts in February and complain to the same people about dodging heavy thunderstorms every summer afternoon. One sight that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face is the beauty of watching the sunset on Florida’s gulf coast.

The west coast of Florida is famous for its white-sand beaches, snowbirds, and sunsets.

Pick a beach, any beach! Almost every beach is a prime viewing location for the planet’s most spectacular sunsets; Relax and unwind as you watch the giant ball of fire slowly sink into the Gulf of Mexico giving way to the deepest hues of red, yellow, and purple skies.

The Snowbird and tourists season kicks into high gear between November and April, so be prepared for lots of rental cars, and people on the highway in the fast lane with their left turn signal on.

Along the entirely to the gulf coast, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of places to pull over and watch the planet’s daily light show. Year-round temperatures are tolerable (yes, Floridians get gold at 60 degrees). No matter what direction you travel, you’ll find people sharing in the peaceful ritual of saying farewell to another day.

I’ve traveled this world and have yet to find another destination who can consistently deliver the badassery of Florida’s gulf coast.
