Located on Florida’s southwest coast, just an hour south of Tampa on the bay, Sarasota provides year-round sunshine and entertainment for all ages. Well-known for the whitest and finest sand in the world, award-winning Longboat Key, Siesta Key and Lido Key beaches offer breath-taking views and balmy breezes.
Sarasota provides a long legacy of the arts. Known as the hub of Florida’s “Cultural Coast,” it is home to John and Mable Ringling and the Ringling Brothers Circus. Sarasota provides the opportunity to visit the circus museum or fine art at Ringling Museum, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall or the Sarasota Opera House.
The Sarasota lifestyle encourages a laid-back atmosphere on island time, with the culture and entertainment of a big city. While some consider it a winter retreat, people of all ages and families of all types, find it easy to call Sarasota home.
