Fun Facts:

  • Siesta Beach, widely known as the #1 Beach in the USA, offers two stand-alone concession stands. Here you can visit the concession at the historic main plaza or view the white sand high above at the Siesta Sun Deck
  • Sarasota County offers five unique concessions throughout the County. These concessions are located at North Jetty Park, Nokomis Beach, Venice Beach, Snook Haven Park and Siesta Beach Park. Each concession offers a wide variety of food, drinks and wonderful views depending on the location being visited.
  • Snook Haven Restaurant is located within Snook Haven Park and just feet away from the wild Myakka River. Here you can enjoy delicious slow smoked food while enjoying the views of the river and the animals which make this river their home.
  • Sit back and enjoy the view of boats entering and exiting the jetty at the North Jetty Concession located within North Jetty Park. This park boasts a newly built main concession, but if you want to enjoy some old Florida you can visit the rebuilt circus trolley car right on the jetty.
  • The Venice Beach Pavilion was completed in 1964 and it home to our Venice Beach Concession. This concession is directly off Venice Beach at the end of a quiet dead end street. Popular with local musicians and those looking to enjoy some old Florida.
