Dolphins, cranes, egrets,owls, pelicans,herons,bald eagles, ospreys,roseate spoonbills,birds of every feather are plentiful.
Pelican Cove has three recreational clubhouses, six heated swimming pools, a spa, a sauna, four lighted tennis courts, and meandering scenic private paths and walkways for hiking, strolling, jogging or biking. Weekly water arobics, tai chi,dancing classes, and workout room are available as are our bikes and kayaks.

Every day is a vacation.
Although secluded, our prime location near Sarasota Square Mall affords us access to everything- retail shops, banks, restaurants, movie theaters, golf courses, health clubs and beaches. University Town Center shopping mall just opened recently near Ellenton Designer Outlet mall, both high end retail shopping centers. From St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota to the North or Venice to the South, shopping is considered a serious activity.
Sarasota is home to the Ringling Museum of Art, Ringling Circus Museum, the Sarasota Ballet of Florida, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, the Sarasota Opera House (www.sarasotaopera.org),and the Asolo Theatre. There are many local theatre groups nearby.
