Nestled between the Tampa Bay area and Fort Myers on the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota is a quiet vacation community known for its history and architecture, arts and, of course, beaches. A sport fishing and golf haven, Sarasota also boasts an interesting history. Once a winter home for the Ringling Brothers Circus family, Sarasota's historic homes, buildings and attractions are marked by circus and vaudeville culture. Visit the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art, now the Florida State University art museum, or tour the many estates and theaters once touched by the Ringling institution. That is, of course, if you can tear yourself away from the stunning sandy beaches on the barrier islands dotting Sarasota Bay. Come one, come all, to this Florida beach paradise!
