Man on the street: Vacation destination

by: Maggie Pahos Observer Intern

Question: “Where is your favorite place to go for a "stay-cation’?"

Nick Froelich

“Forty miles west of Sarasota in the Gulf of Mexico, for the fishing.”

Will Froelich

“I like Nick’s answer. But, also, Siesta Key. There’s all sorts of fun stuff to do there. It’s a very relaxing place — beautiful.”

Hal and Barbara Laeger
“The Ritz-Carlton. I’ve seen the way it treats its guests, so I’d have to say there.”

Nancy Huffman and Maity Schrecengost

“The Florida state parks, especially the Stephen Foster state parks.”

Charlie Woods

“I’m a sailor, so I just go. But, here, the best place to go would be the park at Marina Jack. The park here is good if you’ve got kids or a dog.”

Ernest Barboutis
“Marina Jack. In the morning, go on the south side. In the afternoon, the north side. You get to watch all of the boats.”
