As the seasons rush by in a flurry of work, family, play, and friends, it is time to explore the next holiday in the roundup, the last one before the summer months hit. Many of today’s travelers prefer to travel when others aren’t, enjoying the beauty of less crowded attractions, shorter wait times in restaurants, and less cars on the streets and because Easter  2023 in Sarasota isn’t a normal traveling holiday, it is the perfect time to visit the stunning city of Sarasota! Offering incredible weather, beautiful beaches, and a friendly hometown feel that will make you feel right at home, your Easter celebrations will be even more wonderful when you spend them in one of our RentTheKeys holiday hideaways! This guide to the fun you can have, the ways you can enjoy your familiar holiday traditions while making new ones, and the comforts found in our homey escapes will help give you a little something extra to look forward to in the upcoming days and weeks before your getaway. 

Easter Egg Hunts 

Families with young children know that the first thing their kiddos are going to wonder about, is the Easter Egg hunt that they start every holiday with, and fortunately, your options in Sarasota are plentiful, starting on April 1st and leading up to the big day itself, Sunday, April 9th! The Eggstravaganza Annual Egg Hunt, Waterside Place at Lakewood Ranch, 7500 Island Cove Terrace in Sarasota, is first up on our list, requiring pre-registration and offering a hunt divided into age groups, a chance to meet the Big Bunny himself, face painting and food booths. For a different twist on the same event, the Aqua Egg Hunt is also held on April 1st, Arlington Park & Aquatic Complex, 2650 Waldemere St in Sarasota, and gives kiddos (divided into age groups as well) the chance to hunt for eggs in the waist-deep pool! And for those who like to wait for the big day, the Sarasota Polo Club, Sarasota Polo Club, 8201 Polo Club Lane, offers an egg drop, an Easter brunch, contests regarding cookies and bourbon drinks, and the opportunity to watch a Polo game on Easter Sunday. 

Easter Brunch 

When it comes to a good meal we are all in and if the brunch at the Sarasota Polo Club is a little beyond your comfort zone, you may find the brunch offered at Element: Steak, Seafood, and Pasta, more your speed! Located in downtown Sarasota at 1413 Main Street, the menu hasn’t been released yet, but we can promise it will be delicious, especially as Mimosa Bottle Service is included! If you want to be even more casual in your Easter dining selections, however, may we suggest a picnic on the beach? Pack a cooler filled with ham sandwiches, your favorite beverages, and some chocolate Easter eggs as well and head to any of the beautiful beaches in the area for a day of sun, beauty, and family togetherness! 

Easter with RentTheKeys 

Of course, everything you can do in Sarasota to celebrate the Easter holiday can be enjoyed at home in your RentTheKeys holiday hideaway, and it may even bring you more fun and excitement! Boil your eggs and create your Easter feast in fully equipped kitchens offering high-end appliances, stone countertops, and enough space for more than one chef to share the culinary duties. Decorating your eggs at our large dining room tables, or even taking them outside to enjoy the sun that is shining on your Easter escape will encourage you to take lots of pictures, guaranteed to make your friends and family at home feel jealous. Even in April, the chance of a spring snowstorm is high, and chances are they are digging themselves out from under the effects of the latest storm! Let the honorary Easter Bunny hide the eggs you decorated in large yards, on spacious balconies, or all through the house, if your escape really doesn’t have much hiding space outdoors, letting your kids run mild on their hunt for Easter eggs. 

This holiday, like most holidays, is about spending time with family, and as you and yours gather around family style dinner tables, devouring an Easter ham and all the fixings, you will realize that Easter in Sarasota might just become a new family tradition! After the meal is finished and the dishes are all cleared away, state-of-the-art televisions can be turned to your favorite Easter movie or television show; how long has it been since you watched It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown? Our smart televisions offer all the streaming apps, so just sign in to your favorite, and end your Easter day with laughter and memories! Contact us today!
