Explore Sarasota

Sarasota is a city south of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast that was once the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus. Today, it hosts a number of cultural institutes, notably the Ringling Museum of Art, which showcases old masters and modern art. Sun, sand and water are three things Sarasota has an abundance of, but not all Sarasota beaches are the same. Six islands such as Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach line Sarasota’s extensive coastline. In addition, Sarasota has the highest concentrations of ZagatĀ®-rated restaurants in Florida.
