SARASOTA FLORIDA TRAVEL VIDEO

by | The Lills, Travel

On Christmas day 2013, we took our second road trip in our newly acquired VW bus to Sarasota, Florida for the holidays. After 9 hours of driving, we finally made it to our destination…and our brakes went “spongy”. We needed repair before getting back on the road, so we stopped by a common auto shop, who told us it would be over $900 and would take days before getting parts. Thank goodness for Sunshine Auto Garage in Sarasota. They knew everything about VW buses and took great care of us and our bus that same day, for a quick $300.

 
We covered major ground in Sarasota, Florida and learned so much about the area. Every day, we drove out in our VW bus and discovered something new, like the Ringling Circus Museum. We went to Bob’s Train & Restaurant and on New Years Day we woke up bright and early and headed to Bradenton Beach and met up with Beach Horses, who offer horseback riding on the beach.our

From finding prehistoric sharks teeth at Caspersen Beach to picking real Florida oranges at Brown’s Grove, there was just so much to do. If you’re ever looking for a fun place to road trip to, we’d highly recommend getting to know Sarasota, the fantastic keys and beaches. Thanks Sunshine Auto Garage, Bob’s Train, Sarasota Farmers Market, Brown’s Grove, Island Jet Ski, Beach Horses, Siesta Key Bead Shack, Eat Here Restaurant and everyone else who made our trip so fantastic!
