When our the editors of SRQ | The Magazine introduced a newcomer and visitors guide in 2007, there simply wasn’t a doubt of what to call it. Ever since, SRQ ACCESS has been a mainstay in local hotels and visitor centers across the region as the official guide to the region. Much more than the title of the publication, SRQ ACCESS is just that – a point of entry, rite of passage, unprecedented access live local and a guidebook to the most magical things to see, do, taste and enjoy while in Sarasota and Bradenton.
This year, we’re happy for you to meet this annual publication and know that it will grant you access to the countless treasures along the Gulf Coast. Opening with how to navigate the region, SRQ ACCESS accounts for those that plan to drop anchor here and venture out to the nearby keys and beautiful areas just outside of our community.
If you’re looking to learn (or brush up) on Sarasota history, SRQ ACCESS has you covered. If you’re hoping to plan out your social calendar with major cultural events for the full year, SRQ ACCESS has a calendar of major functions. But if the way to your heart is through your stomach, come hungry. SRQ ACCESS has the most comprehensive list of places to dine and enjoy the flavors of the region.
While we are proud to provide SRQ ACCESS for newcomers and visitors, we know that there are those of you (like us) that love to live local, and that there’s nothing more special that knowing where you live like an old friend. With SRQ ACCESS, we’re sharing all of our secrets with you – shopping tips, where to eat, what to order, what you should do over the weekend and the long story of where we come from. The go anywhere size is perfect for stashing in your tote or beach bag to plan your adventures in Sarasota, Bradenton and beyond, whether you’re a tourist or a tourist in your own town. As you go through this year’s copy and dog-ear the pages and make a master list of everything you want to try this year, we hope that you get to know feel closer to this great region and that gain access to Sarasota and Bradenton like never before.
SRQ ACCESS can be purchased on newsstands throughout 2016.
