Florida’s Gulf Coast just wouldn’t be the same without the city of Sarasota and all she has to offer, from eclectic culture, shopping and fine dining hotspots to beaches and tons of outdoor recreation, from boating and paddleboarding to shelling and sunbathing. It’s a destination that flirts between an urban and small-town feel, which suits just about every age and taste: there’s the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, which is a tribute to America’s most famous circus; Ca’ d’Zn Mansion, a 56-room Venetian Gothic palace that was once the Ringlings’ family home; Mote Marine Aquarium; Marie Selby Botanical Gardens; Sarasota Jungle Gardens; the Aslo Theatre; Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall; Ed Smith Stadium; and a host of fine shopping and dining available at St. Armand’s Circle along the coast.
