Visit Sarasota County (VSC) has announced that Siesta Beach in Sarasota County on Florida’s Gulf Coast has once again been designated the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Top Beach in the United States.
This recognition was first bestowed on Siesta Beach in 2015, and again in 2017. VSC is thrilled to see TripAdvisor contributors select the destination again for 2020. Siesta Beach was named the #1 Beach in America by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, a.k.a. “Dr. Beach” in 2017 and 2011 as well.
“It is a great honor to receive the Top Beach in the United States ranking by TripAdvisor Travelers again this year,” said Virginia Haley, VSC President. “With soft, quartz-crystal sand, beautiful blue-green waters, a great selection of accommodations, restaurants and activities, Siesta Beach is truly a gem in our community. VSC is proud to market the destination and have such an asset to promote on the world stage. It is because of these travelers that we get to tout this designation!”
Part of VSC’s strategy to raise awareness of Siesta Key Beach is to sponsor the Siesta Key destination page on TripAdvisor. This tactic increases consideration of the island and beach within the platform and reaches those researching a trip to Siesta Key Beach. The TripAdvisor Destination Page encompasses an overview on things to do, places to stay, where to eat, and top nearby attractions. VSC also sponsors the Sarasota destination page on TripAdvisor.
