Sarasota is renowned for its arts and culture.

Furthermore, Sarasota boasts world-class music and art institutions comparable to those in larger cities.  The Ringling, State Art Museum of Florida, is home to a premier art and cultural collection.   The Ringling Circus Museum celebrates the entertainment that delighted generations from American cities large and small. Ca’ d’Zan (House of John) was the home of John and Mable Ringling. A testament to the American dream of the Roaring 20’s,  Ca’ d’Zan represents the romance and splendor of the Venice. Equally, the Bayfront Gardens are a living treasure all on their own. From Mable’s rose garden to the majestic Banyan tree groves, the grounds are an awe-inspiring work of art.

Sarasota’s history and character is greatly defined by the Circus.

As a result of being the winter home of John and Mable Ringling and their eponymous circus, Sarasota still honors this most American of all traditions.  Thanks to the success of the Ringling Bros. Circus, “The Greatest Show On Earth,” a strong connection remains through the Ringling Museum, and Circus Sarasota keeps the circus tradition alive here in Sarasota.  (See Sarasota History)

 Medicine and Healthcare 

Another reason to consider Sarasota? It ranks as one of Florida’s best communities for healthcare and medical facilities.  Imagine every specialty field represented by some of the best medical professionals anywhere.  Sarasota Memorial Hospital is just one example with nearly a thousand doctors and a thousand nurses on Staff.  The number of specialists from eye, ear, nose and throat, to heart, orthopedic, and general surgery surgeons make the Suncoast an easy choice for a long-term stay.
