July trip

Hello we are planning to go Seista Key end of July. I keep hearing its a very nice beach. My question is how is the nightlife? We are in our 30's and me and my boyfriend like hip-hop and reggae. I'm wondering if this is the town for us. We really like music.

Siesta Village has some places with live music, but this isn't South Beach. If you want clubs that are hopping at 2 AM, this won't be the place for you.

Siesta Key has live music on the weekends, and some weeknights. Mixed, different kinds of music. I think you will enjoy it....also check out downtown at night....

Go to this site - http://www.visitsiestakey.com/ - and see if it answers your questions.

Yes, it's not South Beach BUT it's a magnificent place and there is live music at various establishments ... people come here more for the beach (repeatedly voted #1).

Might also want to check on the Sarasota forums as well (advertising for SK sometimes identify themselves as "Sarasota").

It is more flip flops and jimmy buffet than stilettos and hip hop really.
