Sarasota City Real Estate

City of Sarasota

Sarasota is considered as one of Florida’s major cities in the Gulf Coast and cultural capital as well. It flaunts shimmering beaches and extensive range of shopping districts, fine dining, circus shows and art exhibits. Sarasota owns an eclectic mixture of cultures and traditions one would consider a haven to shopaholics, beach fanatics and art enthusiasts.

Paying homage to the family behind America’s most popular circus in the early times, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art was established to honor the Ringling family. Likewise, visitors can take a tour to Ca’ d’Zan Mansion, a remarkable Venetian Gothic palace of 56 rooms, which is the Ringling’s old family house. Browse at the ancient costumes, old wagons and a miniature circus. Visiting Sarasota gives the traveler a mixture of interests to try out such as an early morning golf round, or savoring the powdery white sand beach in the afternoon, and waiting for the sun to set at dusk over the Gulf of Mexico where exciting night life begins.

People in Sarasota have a wide range of lifestyle and activities, from watching a classy opera at the worldwide acclaimed opera house, attending art exhibits and viewing artistic artifacts at the Art Museum, watching a soul-stirring symphony orchestra and captivating ballet performance, to shopping at an early morning view of fresh produce at farmer’s market or buy goods at St. Armand’s Circle which is near the coast. Art fanatics can also marvel at the largest collections of Rubens canvasses in Sarasota, alongside works by Old Masters.

Tree shaded boulevard of Main Street full of restaurants, gift shops, boutiques, cafes, and gourmet food stalls is what makes Downtown Sarasota popular. It boasts of antique shops and dark art cinemas at Burns Court, or the antiquated artists’ colony at Towles Court where you feel the friendly atmosphere. Visitors can run an early morning jog along the Bayfront, savor an exquisite lunch beneath the banyans at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, and relax in the afternoon with a flavorful tea in luxurious style at the Ritz-Carlton.

Houses in this city vary from bungalow at side streets of old-fashioned traditional neighborhoods to affluent brand new style condominiums found at the Bayfront. Downtown Sarasota is an excellent place to live, with all the natural wonders and historical aura it has to offer, and a neighborhood you can appreciate while you walk casually under the tropical sun.
