Gulf Gate Estates, a census-designated place in beautiful Sarasota County Florida, is a perfect getaway for you and your favorite furry friend. With a moderately low population, but not too small to be boring, Gulf Gate Estates is central to the exciting city of Sarasota proper, which is where you’ll want to spend much of your time if you’re vacationing in the area. Heck, even if you’re local to the area, there’s always the opportunity to learn about new and exciting places to visit with your pup.
Take, for example, the Red Bug Slough Reserve: an expansive and natural beauty that you and your pup can explore through the numerous hiking trails. With trails of varying difficulty, whether you’re a hiking newbie or if you’ve been doing it for some years, there’s something there for you. Best of all, there’s a nice pond in the center of the reserve where your pup can hop in and cool off. You’ll want to bring plenty of clean drinking water, as well as some doggy waste bags to keep the area tidy. Once you visit this place, you’ll see why Sarasota locals rank it so highly on their doggy to-do lists!
