Welcome to Sarasota

Fine white sand beaches, the calm waters of Sarasota Bay, and many cultural and environmental amenities have attracted Sarasota Florida visitors since the late 19th century. The city was long-time winter headquarters of the famed Ringling Brothers Circus and is the location of Pinecraft, a unique winter resort for the Amish and Mennonite communities. The warm Gulf of Mexico and Bay waters offer great beach going, dolphin watching, fishing, kayaking, and even parasailing. Explore downtown Sarasota on an art gallery tour or bar crawl, then find the city’s wilder side by paddling the Lido Key Mangrove Tunnels or ziplining through the nearby forest on an adventure course.
