Vacation like a champion at our Suncoast Grand Prix hotel

Lido Beach Resort is just steps from one of Sarasota’s most exciting annual events

As one of the longest-running powerboat races in the country, the annual Sarasota Power Boat Grand Prix is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. The 10-day event takes place every summer across a variety of local venues and culminates in two days of racing over Fourth of July weekend. Book a stay at Lido Beach Resort now and enjoy easy access to all the fun – whether you plan on winning or simply watching from the comfort of your room!

The turnout for 2018 was fantastic! Scheduled for July 4, 5, with the championship on the 7th - this year's festival will be better than ever! Take advantage of an array of thrilling preliminary events, from driver meet-and-greets to car shows. Amateur athletes can get in on the action at the Suncoast Fun Run, and night owls won't want to miss the downtown block party, known for its tasty food and spectacular live entertainment. A spectacular firework show on July 4th along with a parade of boats are among scheduled events.

After the winners have been announced and the festivities are powered down, retire to Lido Beach Resort and unwind in stylish guest rooms featuring plush bedding, flat-screen TVs, private balconies and gorgeous ocean views. If you've got energy to burn still, our beachfront tiki bar is the ideal locale to take in a stunning Florida sunset while sipping on a tropical cocktail.

A new wave of excitement awaits at our Sarasota resort. Book your room at our hotel near the Sarasota Power Boat Grand Prix today!
