Sarasota — A bay-front community flanked by picturesque keys, Sarasota lies just 60 miles south of Tampa and is home to the 66-acre Ringling (of circus fame) historic mansion and art museum, orchid-filled botanical gardens, and over 40 golf courses. Our Sarasota Travel Guide illustrates how shoppers can peruse everything from estate-sale antiques to trendy boutiques, and how foodies’ dining options run the gamut from local seafood shacks to award-winning gourmet eateries.

Why Go

For the year-round sun and miles of white-sand beaches, not to mention the arts scene and wildlife-rich nature preserves.
