Sarasota has so much to see and do and that’s before you stretch out on the beautiful beaches with Siesta Key Beach said to be the most beautiful in the world. Begin with a visit to the Ringling Estate which is a snapshot of Sarasota of days gone by. The estate adds new features each year and is a fascinating insight into its history. For the natural life of Sarasota, a visit to the Jungle Gardens is a treat. There, botanical gardens greet you with associated plants, animals and birds. It’s more Central America than Florida but it’s a stunning place to see and enjoy.

Sarasota Info

Sarasota is an interesting and beautiful city on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The city began life in 1821 when a settler came to the area to take advantage of the prime fishing in the bay. He sold dried fish to the local Indians and married an enterprising fellow settler and together set about the development of the area. Many other people, including Bertha Honore Palmer, were to have a significant impact on the city’s development until it grew to the resort it is today.
