Sarasota's Colorful History

In the 1920s, John and Mable Ringling made this unique area the winter home for their world famous circus and for Ca d’Zan, their Mediterranean villa with its accompanying Ringling Museum of Art. Throughout the next two decades, Sarasota exploded, with northern retirees, circus performers, fishermen and artists among the eclectic population that were drawn by the region’s charm.

Today, Sarasota comprises a beautiful and fascinating array of communities of all shapes and sizes. From a revitalized downtown and romantic barrier island settings to mainland comfort, there is something here for everyone. Recreational opportunities abound for those who enjoy the beach, world-class tennis, championship golf or international performing art.
