Getting There & Away
- Anna Maria Island can be accessed via Manatee Ave and Cortes Rd, and it's possible to drive south from there to Longboat Key (which is also accessible from Lido Key to the south).
- John Ringling Blvd will take you to Lido Key from the mainland.
- Siesta Key can be reached via Siesta Dr and Stickney Point Rd.
- A car keeps things simple, but there are also MCAT trolleys and buses between Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key, and SCAT buses that run between Sarasota and Lido and Siesta Keys.
