With its convenient location the the greater Sarasota area, Siesta Key offers outdoor enthusiasts and visitors with a special interest in ecology a wealth of adventure. On the northern tip of nearby Lido Key, the Mote Aquarium and Marine Lab offers guided ecological tours of the bay area. The greater Sarasota area offers even more outdoor attractions: The Myakka River State Park is the largest state park in Florida, with 45 square miles of wetlands, prairies, and woodlands. The park's soaring Canopy Walkway allows brave visitors to swing among the treetops, and observe epiphytes - rare plants that grow on tree trunks - in the wild.
