The Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce Announces THE NEW “SHOP LOCAL CARD” SHOP, DINE, & STAY LOCAL!

The Siesta Key Chamber believes in the power and value of small, locally owned businesses. The Shop Local Card promotion highlights our local businesses through discounts and specials.  Currently over 30 businesses are participating with more expected to join.  The greater the variety, the greater the value!  The participation list will be kept updated on the Chamber website and be enclosed with the purchase of the cards.  Cards will be valid from October 1, 2017 – September 31, 2018.  Let the shopping begin!

How it works:  Cards will be sold through the Chamber for $25 each, or 5 for $100.  Card holders may use the cards as frequently as they wish but must show card to receive the specials and discounts.  No refund or replacement card will be given if lost or stolen.  Cards are perfect for residents, tourists, gift giving, and they make great stocking stuffers!

Participating businesses will display a participation window “sign”, with the artwork pictured above.  Cards may be purchased online at or at the Chamber Office, located at 5114 Ocean Boulevard, Siesta Key, FL 34242.

– Trip Advisor - 

There are great family rental destinations all over Florida, but only one sports the best beach in America. Siesta Key, with its stunning traveler-favorite Siesta Beach, gets our vote for your summer getaway because of its serene beauty, powdery sand, clear blue waters, and local attractions for all ages. On the water, families can enjoy scuba, snorkeling, jet-skiing, kayaking, fishing, or whale/dolphin-watching tours. On land, there’s Segway rentals and leisurely bike tours.

Read the whole article here.


Enjoy the ride and take the new Siesta Key Breeze Trolley - it’s FREE!  The trolley route goes to and from Siesta Key Village and Turtle Beach approximately every 30 minutes, every day 8:00 a.m. to Midnight, March through September. Riders may also be picked up and dropped off at bus stop locations along Beach Road or flag it down south of Stickney Point Road.
